Introduction:

There are few creations as tantalizing and satisfying as the cheesesteak eggroll. This delightful fusion of two beloved classics – the Philly cheesesteak and the crispy eggroll – is a culinary marvel that captivates taste buds and sparks joy with every bite.

Origin:

The origin story of the cheesesteak eggroll is as fascinating as its flavor profile. Born from the vibrant streets of Philadelphia, where the iconic Philly cheesesteak reigns supreme, this inventive twist on a classic was a stroke of culinary genius. It takes the essence of the beloved cheesesteak – thinly sliced steak, melted cheese, and savory onions – and encases it in a crispy, golden-brown eggroll wrapper, creating a harmonious marriage of textures and flavors.

What Makes Cheesesteak Egg Rolls Irresistible?

What makes the cheesesteak eggroll so irresistible is its perfect balance of flavors and textures. With each bite, you’re greeted by the savory richness of the steak, the creamy melt-in-your-mouth goodness of the cheese, and the satisfying crunch of the eggroll wrapper. The addition of caramelized onions adds a touch of sweetness and depth, elevating the flavor profile to new heights.

Versatility and Adaptability

One of the most wonderful things about cheesesteak eggrolls is their versatility. While traditionalists may prefer the classic combination of steak, cheese, and onions, adventurous foodies can experiment with different variations to suit their taste preferences. From adding peppers and mushrooms to incorporating different types of cheese, the possibilities are endless, allowing for endless culinary creativity.

Perfect for Any Occasion

Whether you’re hosting a casual gathering with friends, planning a game day feast, or simply craving a satisfying snack, cheesesteak eggrolls are the perfect addition to any menu. They’re easy to make, easy to share, and guaranteed to be a hit with even the most discerning palates.

Bringing People Together

Food has a magical way of bringing people together, and cheesesteak eggrolls are no exception. There’s something inherently communal about gathering around a plate of these delicious delights, sharing stories, laughter, and good times as you indulge in the simple pleasure of great food.

Begin by placing your steak in the freezer for about an hour so that it is nice and firm when it’s time to slice it. Next, we need to dice our peppers and onions. Feel free to omit the peppers if you’d like OR even add other peppers and mushrooms to yours. It’s completely customizable to your preferences.

Shave the steak thin and season with salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, and worcestershire sauce. Cook in a skillet over medium high along with the peppers and onions. Once done, remove and chill before wrapping.

We are going o make a cheese sauce from scratch. That recipe is down below too – just make sure to shred your own cheddar cheese.

When selecting egg roll wrappers, I find that the international market tends to have the best selection. Use whatever you can find though, but avoid the “vegan” options unless you need to (they do not hold up as well when frying IMO)

Each egg roll gets a slice of provolone cheese. You can mix in some shredded cheese into your beef mixture as well if you would like. I also add some sweet chili to the mixture.

Wrap, seal, and roll! Get the oil up to 350 and fry them until they’re golden brown and beautiful.

Plate with cheese sauce or sweet chili and garnish with chives.

Conclusion:

In a world where culinary boundaries are constantly being pushed and traditional dishes are being reimagined, cheesesteak eggrolls stand out as a shining example of culinary creativity and innovation. With their irresistible combination of flavors, textures, and versatility, they have captured the hearts and taste buds of food lovers everywhere, proving that sometimes, the most delicious discoveries are found where you least expect them. So why not embark on your own culinary adventure and experience the magic of cheesesteak eggrolls for yourself? Trust me, your taste buds will thank you.
