Don’t you just love a good cheesesteak? Full of flavor, cheesy, meaty, a bit greasy? Okay, so maybe it’s not for everyone but I, personally, can get down with a really good cheesesteak! Devin, being a full-fledged meat-n-cheese type of guy, can’t get enough of them. So of course it was his idea to get me to put his favorite sub filling in an egg roll and deep fry it with sauce on the side.
Before you say that this just sounds like a big greasy, cheesy mess, I have two questions for you: 1. Do you like cheeseburgers? 2. Do you like having the option to alter a recipe to make yourself feel a little bit better that at least it’s healthier than the original? If you answered yes to either of these questions then I encourage you to keep reading!
For the cheeseburger lovers, you have no shame in what you eat anyway so stop crying. For the alternative seekers, you probably have made it your lifestyle to find alternatives for every recipe you try so this one should be a piece of cake. But in case you’re struggling, I’ve added alternative options in the recipe below so you can have your cake and eat half of it too!
I have to say, though, while this recipe, without alterations, is so incredibly delicious, we only enjoy it as a once in a while treat. A cheat day or rainy Sunday type of snack. I wouldn’t go bingeing on this one every week!
Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried the recipe and if you altered it or not or both!
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 onion, chopped
1 (12.5 ounce) package frozen sandwich steak meat
1 (14 ounce) package egg roll wrappers
4 slices American cheese, halved
2 cups oil for frying, or as needed
1/4 cup ketchup
Heat skillet with the tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Break frozen steak pieces into skillet; cook and stir until steak is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Arrange egg roll wrappers on a flat surface; place a half slice of cheese on each one. Layer an equal amount of steak mixture on top of each cheese slice. Roll up egg rolls according to package directions, and seal edges, wetting with water if necessary.
Heat 1 inch of oil in a large skillet, or preheat a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Fry the rolls in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove; drain on paper towels. Serve warm with ketchup for dipping.
