Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls Recipe

Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls Recipe

This fun take on the traditional Philly cheesesteak is a great meal to make with kids. Leave the slicing and frying to you, but let them have fun with the stuffing and rolling. This recipe incorporates green peppers and steak sauce for additional flavor and texture, but if you’d rather go fully traditional, you can eliminate those ingredients without any other tweaks to the recipe.

Feel free to fry a batch of these, allow them to cool completely, then freeze in a freezer bag for up to a month. Just remove and reheat in a toaster or oven until evenly hot throughout and serve with a side of ranch.

“This is such a fun recipe! The whole family can participate in the rolling process. Flavors are on point and they’re perfectly crunchy. I got exactly 12 rolls, so double recipe if you need more. The great part is that they fry quickly so you have them ready in less than an hour.” —Tara Omidvar

How do you thinly slice a ribeye?

To make the ribeye easy to slice, freeze it for about 30 minutes first, then slice using a very sharp knife.
