Steak Egg Rolls
These were such a happy little surprise for me! One time my husband and I went on a date at a local steakhouse, and one of their appetizers was philly cheese steak egg rolls. They are quite different than these, but this is my spin and I actually like it better! These are nice and cheesy. The pepper jelly drizzle that goes on them has the perfect sweetness and kick to make it totally perfect.
The pepper jelly drizzle I use is based off of Emeril's recipe. You can find that recipe here. Honestly, it is perfect, but I occasionally change it based on what is in my pantry. I will post below exactly how I did it.
Any time I cook steak, I throw on extra meat so the next day I can make these.
Steak Egg Rolls:
- Egg Roll Wrappers (about 10)
- Left over steak (about 2 cups), sliced into strips
- 8-10oz cream cheese
- 1cup green onions
- water for wrapping the egg rolls
- Canola Oil for frying
- Lay out all your ingredients, and go ahead and cube up the cream cheese so you will have it ready to place in the wrapper
- Place the steak, green onions and cream cheese in wrapper
- Roll and seal with the water to make a tight closure.
- Place oil in a deep pot or deep fryer. Get the oil to 325-350 and carefully place them in one at a time. Don't pop yourself!
- Fry until golden in color
Pepper Jelly Drizzle (again, original Emeril recipe is found here)
- 1/2 cup red bell pepper and yellow bell pepper
- 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
- 3/4 cup cider vinegar
- 3 1/4 cups sugar
- 2 cloves garlic or 1tsp garlic powder
- Add all ingredients to pot.
- Bring it to a boil (careful not to over boil- it will be a sticky mess!)
- When it coats your spoon, remove from the heat and let cool, it will thicken.
- You can store this in your fridge if you do not use it all, it says it stores for 6 months.
I never have fresno peppers, so I have never used those in here. I always add different color bell peppers if I have them on hand. Also, you can use fresh garlic or the powder.
Other ways to change it up: Add jalapeño as the original calls for. Add tabasco peppers. Add more red pepper if you don't have the jalapeño or tabasco peppers and like it spicy! Add more garlic.
This drizzle is so magical. Don't skip out on it!
