Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

This is an oldie, but goodie. We have been making this simple recipe for cheese steak egg rolls for years. Packed with beef and cheese, baked to crispy perfection, and the perfect appetizer recipe.

Recipe Features:

  • Baked Not Fried: Although, you could definitely fry these!
  • Air Fryer Recipe: YES, my friends, you can make these in the air fryer (instructions below).

What You Need:

This easy appetizer recipe is a go-to. SO GOOD and a family recipe. I’ll go over a few key ingredients here. For a full list of ingredients and measurements, see the recipe card below.

  • Beef: When I first made this recipe, we liked to use thinly sliced steak or beef. Since then we have switched to ground beef. It is easier and tasty!
  • Wrappers: You can find egg roll or wonton wraps in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. Normally around the tofu.
  • Oil: We really like avocado oil. It doesn’t have much of a flavor but helps get that crispness you need in these delicious egg rolls. You can find this in a spray can which is incredibly convenient.

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking tray with foil and set aside.
  2. Add the ground beef, onion, and pepper to a large skillet heated over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook and lightly crumble until browned, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Drain the grease and allow the meat mixture to cool slightly.
  5. Lay the egg roll wrappers into a single layer.
  6. Place 1/2 slice of cheese onto each.
  7. Add 2 heaping tablespoons of the meat mixture to each wrapper on top of the cheese.
  8. Pull one corner over the meat mixture. Wrap and fold the remaining sides in, securing tightly by using a little water on the edges to help secure.
  9. Lightly spray both sides of your egg rolls with cooking spray. Bake 10-15 minutes, turning halfway through, until crisp on both sides.

How to make Cheesesteak Egg Rolls in the Air Fryer:

  1. Lightly spray the basket of the air fryer with oil. Spray the prepared egg rolls with cooking spray.
  2. Place seam side down in the basket in a single layer so they are not touching. This may need to be done in batches.
  3. Close the air fryer and set the temperature to 390 degrees. Cook for 6 minutes, turn carefully with tongs, and cook for another 6 minutes until golden and crisp.
  4. Transfer the cooked egg rolls to a rack to drain off any excess oil.
