Philly Cheese Steak Egg Roll with Cucumber Salad

This meal is a little unique, but is sooo amazing. I made Philly Cheese Steak EGG ROLLS!!!! Yes, I said Egg rolls and they turned out unforgettable. Now, I am going to try Cuban Egg Rolls (Ham, Swiss, Pork, Pickles and dip in mustard), Reuben (Swiss, Sauerkraut, Corned Beef and dip in thousand island). The ideas do not stop. I made about 24 and froze the rest. I figured if my husband wants a snack we could bake them. Since the Egg Rolls are a little heavy I paired it with a healthy crunchy cucumber salad. This meal was so good. Try it and ENJOY!!!! CUCUMBER SALAD
2 Large Cucumbers, sliced really thin
1/2 onion, sliced really thin
1/2 cp water
1/2 cp distilled white vinegar
1/2 cp sugar
salt and pepper
(Add a little mint or dill if you would like)
1. Just combine all the ingredients. The longer this sets the better it tastes. It tastes awesome the next day.

Philly Cheese Steak Egg Rolls
1 tub of Crisco (Heated on Med-High heat)

1 3lb London Broil
2 TB Steak Seasoning
1 Lg white onion, slice very thin
1 Red Bell Pepper, Sliced thin
1 Pablano, sliced very thin
1 Green Pepper, Sliced very thin
1 8oz. Pepper Jack Cheese, Shredded
1 package of Egg Roll Wrappers

Egg wash:
2 Eggs
2 TB Milk

1. Grill London Broil with 1 TB of seasoning on both side for about 3-4 min each side. You want this Med. Rare. When it is done let it set for 15 min.
2. During the time for the steak to grill saute the onions, peppers and 1 TB of the steak seasoning until slightly soft. Pull from the burner and add the cheese. Toss.
3. Slice the meat really thin...Almost chipped. (I used my food processor. The slicing plate.) Toss the meat into the pan with the pepper, onions and cheese.
4. Using each wrap add a little of the steak filling then fold the bottom (use a little egg wash) and fold each side (add a little egg wash) and then roll the top. It also shows you how to roll on the back of the package.
5. Drop in the hot grease and cook until brown. Repeat.


  1. Excellent, Miranda! I love both cheesesteak and eggrolls and this is a perfect combo! Thank you for your comments on my site - I always appreciate the feedback :) Please keep in touch!

  2. This looks wonderful, but I am afraid to deep fry. Hubby and i once set a place on fire. No joke.

  3. The kitchen can be dangerous. I cut my finger cleaning my mandoline really bad. I think I tramatized my kiddos. But all is well.

  4. What an inventive idea? we always like your posts. when someone says, "Philly Cheese Steaks", some eyes light up around here. Thanks ,s

  5. Being from the Philadelphia area at first, this shocked me. But I bet if I had them, I would feel the excitement by combining these traditional east and west dishes.

  6. I had Philly cheese steak egg rolls at a restaurant in NYC called Fetch - they were fantastic. Yours look equally delicious!

  8. Loved it so light and crispy and all the beautiful flavours. yum :) Rice-Recipes

  9. I LOVE cucumber salad especially with seasoned rice vinegar. What a great idea to make the egg rolls with steak - I know my husband would love them that way. Thanks for the recipes!

  10. What a great idea! I love the variations you mentioned - I hope you'll tell us how they turn out. In the meantime, I wonder what I'd like to try . . . ?

  11. Mmm..that does look like it would hit the spot.

  12. Wow! This looks really good, both the salad and the egg rolls. For the cucumber salad, I might try using seasoned rice vinegar for added flavor and maybe use a sweet onion for both recipes. I've have this one on my list to try!

  13. What a creative idea. Two of my favorites rolled into one. :)

  14. What a fantastic recipes. Thanks for sharing with us.
