Philly Cheesesteak Egg Roll Ingredients
- Olive Oil
- Egg: Egg Wash (Egg + 1 tablespoon of water will seal our Egg rolls)
- Green Pepper and Onion
- Jalapeno, Optional
- Ribeye: While there are many types of steak that can be used, I use Ribeye when I am making Philly cheesesteak egg rolls. The steak needs to be cut very thin. Ribeyes have beautiful fat marbling which gives great flavor, and cooks up quick. Bonus: they’re also super tender. You could also substitute Sirloin here.
- Provolone Cheese: Freshly shredded provolone is my favorite. Pepper jack or mozzarella would work as well.
- Egg Roll Wrappers: Egg roll wrappers are available in most grocery stores. In most grocery stores, the egg roll wrappers are located in the refrigerator area of the produce section.
- Vegetable Oil, For Frying
