A favorite tailgating recipe, these Air Fryer Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls are both easy and delicious. Always a huge hit at any gameday event, stuffed with steak, cheese, onions, peppers and mushrooms. Or leave out the veggies and just do steak and cheese all the way.
This event is sponsored by ThermoWorks. I received a ThermoPop thermometer to aid in the creation of this post. #sponsored
My favorite part about gameday is all of the great appetizers and snacks that are served. Yes, for me, it’s all about the food.
One of our favorite quick and easy snacks for gameday is these Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls. We love to serve it with different dips, our favorite being a spicy cheese dip.
And… that’s the glory of cheese dip. It goes great with these Air Fryer Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls, but if you make enough, you can serve it with chips too.
These go fast, so be sure and make up a bunch.
What kind of steak should I use for Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls?
I usually use rib-eye or top round. I slice the raw beef very thin. Some meat departments will do it for you, if you ask them. When ready to cook, lightly oil a cast iron skillet and cook the beef over medium, until a temperature of 145 degrees with a thermometer.
I love using the ThermoPop from ThermoWorks. It has a rotating display which is GREAT for so many things. This thermometer (and two others) I use almost every single day in the kitchen. From candy making, to jellies and jams. Meat, chicken, seafood and even broths and soups.
Can I use different meat to make Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls?
If you want to save a couple of dollars, you can totally do with a thinner, cheaper cut of meat. It can often be tougher, so when I do that, I usually slow cook the steak in a crock pot or in the oven until it basically falls apart.
You can buy a lot of meat that way and you’ll make lots of egg rolls. So it is a more cost productive way to make them for a crowd.
Since all Air Fryers are different, when testing this recipe, start the cooking time a little lower until you know how long it needs. I need 6 minutes total, and I flip at the 3 minute mark.
What kind of cheese should I use for Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls?
Provolone is the cheese of choice. I live in St. Louis, so we also have a cheese called Provel and that’s what I usually use, but if I can’t get it, provolone is also the #1 choice.
Before I assemble these, I usually saute some onions, peppers and mushrooms in butter and add to about a half. Then I insert a toothpick in the plain ones, so that people know they are plain. You can do them however you want.
