Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls Are Even Better Than The Sandwich

Yum! These sound SO good.

When you’re craving both Chinese fast food and American fast food and you can’t decide which you want more, what do you do? If your answer isn’t to make Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls, you’re doing something wrong.

Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls are the best of both worlds, as you get to enjoy simultaneously the crispy crunch of an egg roll and the cheesy, meaty goodness that is a Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Plus it’s excellent finger food for parties or an on-the-go bite.

Blogger Dinner Then Dessert goes into detail about how easy this recipe is to make, not to mention cheap. Using ingredients like ground beef, onion, green bell pepper and egg roll wrappers, you can make a very hearty snack.

The beef is seasoned with basic ingredients like salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce, mixed in with veggies and butter. Once the meat is prepared, all you have left to do is roll up your egg rolls along with American cheese and pan-fry them.

If you’re unsure what to dip them in, try ketchup, cheez whiz or a mix of condiments like sriracha and mayo.
