Philly Cheesesteak Egg Roll

         That savory flavor of provolone cheese, steak, onion and green pepper makes my mouth water just thinking about it. However, since I am working on my weight, I have found a new way to enjoy these sandwiches. And you know, I just may like these better than on the big hoagie roll.

Who does not like a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich? Lately, I have been working on finding new ways to enjoy the same foods, but modified, to help me in my weight loss challenge.

This just may be the one I stick with all the time. Probably even after I hit my goal weight.

            I am using egg roll wrappers in this recipe. You get the same flavor from the philly Cheesesteak and breading, but it is a thinner breading, less calories and allowing for more of the great combination of steak, onion, pepper and cheese.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            What type of meat should I use?

You can use a good sirloin, sliced thin. I prefer to use a rib-eye steak and slice it thin. The meat of a rib-eye melts in your mouth. Round steak or even flank steak is commonly used in place of the rib-eye.

            Do I need to use Provolone Cheese?

The provolone cheese gives you the true flavor of an authentic Philly Cheesesteak. If you do not like provolone, use Swiss or mozzarella.

            Can I use colored bell peppers?

Certainly. I am a firm believer in if the food looks great, it tastes great. Colored peppers will add color to this and taste fabulous.

            How do you bake egg rolls?

You need to lightly spray the egg roll with cooking spray and bake at 425* until they are golden brown. Keep in mind, the taste will be slightly different than if you fried them.
