The Origin Story of Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

Before we dive into the kitchen, let’s take a moment to appreciate the origin of Cheesesteak Egg Rolls. This delightful creation is a fusion of two iconic dishes – the Philly cheesesteak, a sandwich originating from Philadelphia, and the crispy egg roll, a Chinese-American favorite.


The combination of savory, thinly sliced beef, gooey cheese, and the crunch of the egg roll wrapper is a match made in culinary heaven.


To get started, let’s gather the key players for our Cheesesteak Egg Rolls:

  1. Thinly sliced ribeye steak
  2. Provolone or American cheese (or a blend of both)
  3. Egg roll wrappers (I recommend buying egg roll wrappers from the grocery store. They can be found in the refrigerated sections)
  4. Onion, thinly sliced
  5. Bell peppers, assorted colors, thinly sliced
  6. Mushrooms, sliced
  7. Olive oil
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. Optional: Sriracha or hot sauce for a kick

Preparing the Filling:

The heart of any Cheesesteak Egg Roll lies in its filling. Here’s how to achieve the perfect blend of flavors and textures:

  1. Sautéing the Vegetables: In a pan, heat olive oil and sauté the thinly sliced onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms until they’re tender and caramelized. This creates a flavorful base for your cheesesteak filling.
  2. Cooking the Ribeye Steak: In the same pan, cook the thinly sliced ribeye steak until it’s browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness. Season with salt and pepper for that classic cheesesteak taste.
  3. Melting the Cheese: Add the provolone or American cheese (or both!) to the pan, allowing it to melt and coat the steak and vegetables. This gooey mixture is what makes the filling irresistibly delicious.
