Raise your hand if you love Philly cheesesteak! I just can’t get enough of that steak, pepper and cheese combination. These Philly cheesesteak egg rolls are a super fun appetizer, I always get so many compliments when I serve them at parties.

How do you make Philly cheesesteak egg rolls?

The first step is to cook up your filling. The filling for these egg rolls is died rib eye steak, green bell pepper and onion which are cooked in a little bit of butter.

You want to make sure your meat is diced fairly small to make it easier to bite into the egg rolls. You can also add some diced mushrooms if you’re a mushroom lover.

What kind of meat do you use for Philly cheesesteak?

Traditionally, thinly sliced rib eye is used for Philly cheesesteak sandwiches which is what we’re using in these egg rolls. If you don’t want to use rib eye, you could try sirloin or flank steak, or even ground beef for a different take on this dish.

The meat mixture is spooned into egg roll wrappers along with some provolone cheese. The egg rolls are then folded up and are ready to be fried.

Never folded an egg roll before? There’s a handy reference guide on the back of the egg roll wrappers! My store typically carries egg roll wrappers in the refrigerated case in the produce section.

After your Philly cheesesteak egg rolls are folded up, you can fry them immediately or cover them and store them in the fridge for up to one day before frying.

How do you bake egg rolls?

You can bake these egg rolls, although you won’t get quite the same crispy crust as you would from frying. Simply coat the tops of your egg rolls with cooking spray and bake at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until browned and crispy.

You can serve your egg rolls as is, or with a creamy dipping sauce such as ranch or a horseradish sauce. They’re great either way!

  1. This looks so yum. Can I make a batch of these and freeze and then fry them as needed? Thinjing ahead for our religious month Ramadan.

  2. Let mixture cool to room temperature before filling egg roll wraps! Will make them soggy and they will tear if mixture is hot

    1. 5 stars
      Thank you so much for that information.I did not know that it needed to cool first. Also I’ve been trying to make this recipe for the longest and I finally found time! I think my kids will enjoy,will let you know! 😋Thank you!

  3. I’ve never had a Philly cheesesteak but I had these egg rolls at a bar in Vegas. OMG… They were so good!! I’ve been craving them ever since & have to make them. ;-}
    To make sure I curb my craving, I have a few questions….
    1. Will the meat dept thinly slice your rib eye for you if asked? If not, any other suggestions?
    2. What kind of oil is best to deep fry them in? Sounds like a silly question but I was told which oil you use can make a big difference on taste.

    1. I think they would thinly slice the meat, if not, just partially freeze the meat and it will be easy to cut it thin. I typically use canola oil but any neutral flavored oil will work such as vegetable oil or peanut oil.

  4. Used this recipe it went very well just added some mushrooms in my meat mixture and used a whole slice of cheese instead of a half. Definitely will make them again.

    Absolutely delicious!! My husband and I made these for our nontraditional New Year’s day dinner. I was a little intimidated initially and actually assigned my husband to roll the egg rolls. He did a fantastic job and the recipe is extremely simple. I used havarti and cheddar cheese I had on hand and they turned out GREAT. We used spicy quacamole to dip them in. So good we are making them again tomorrow. Don’t judge me…we have to use the wrappers up:)

    1. Havent made this recipe, but I just did homemade egg rolls in my air fryer, I brushed them in olive oil to completely coat(not dripping) and did them at about 350° having to flip at least once in my machine. They were good.
