Philly Cheese Steak Egg Rolls


 Canola oil, for frying

2 eggs

2 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 pound rib-eye steak, thinly sliced, flash fried with the onions

16 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded (or Provolone)

8 egg roll skins


Preheat oil to 350 degrees F in medium saucepan. Fill with enough oil that egg rolls will not rest on the bottom of pan. Mix egg and milk together, in a small bowl, for egg wash.

In medium sauté pan over medium heat add olive oil, onion, and peppers. Sweat vegetables until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. In a separate sauté pan, add a little more oil and add your onions, cool until softened and add your sliced rib-eye steak and cook until done. Combine the ingredients from both sauté pans and add cheese and mix thoroughly, until cheese begins to melt. Remove from heat, strain in a fine mesh sieve to remove excess moisture, and let cool.

Divide cooled mixture into 8 equal parts. Place mixture in center of each egg roll skin. Fold in side corners and roll, sealing edges with egg wash. Submerge egg rolls in oil and fry, making sure the rolls do not touch the sides or the bottom of the pan. Fry in batches, to avoid over-crowding, until golden brown. Remove egg rolls to paper towels to blot excess oil. Cut egg rolls on bias, place on a serving platter and serve hot
