It hasn’t been very long since I created a recipe for Irish Egg Rolls with leftover Corned Beef. We all loved them, and I decided to make a different version. We liked these even better! Preparation is even easier, as I threw everything in my food processor. A Reuben to go! Here’s how I made them:
INGREDIENTS: YIELDS 15 EGG ROLLS
2 ½ cups +/- Corned Beef, cooked and shredded
1 ¾ cups Sauerkraut, drained very well
1 medium Carrot, shredded
¾ cup Onion, diced
¼ cup water
8 slices Swiss Cheese
1/3 cup Thousand Island dressing
½ tsp Garlic Powder, ½ tsp Onion Powder, Salt and Pepper
Egg Roll Wrappers
Olive Oil for brushing
Put Corned Beef in a food processor and process until finely shredded. Place in a large bowl and set aside.
In a small saucepan, add ¼ cup of water, Carrot, and Onion. Simmer until Carrot is crisp tender. Cool a bit and add to bowl. Most if not all the water is going to evaporate, so keep an eye on it.
Add Swiss Cheese to the food processor and process until you have small pieces. (I did mine about ¼”). Add to the bowl.
If you want to process the Sauerkraut, feel free. I used homemade, and it was a little on the large side, so I gave it a quick process. Add to the bowl.
Stir all the ingredients and add Thousand Island dressing, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Black Pepper, and a little Salt.
Place wrapper down with corner facing you and place a good 1/3 cup of the filling on the wrapper. Roll wrapper away from you. When you get to the corners, wet them with your fingers and press down with your index finger to seal. Wet and seal. Repeat until filling is gone.
Brush top, bottom and sides of each Egg Roll and place in a 400° F air fryer. Cook until they are browned and crisp. 3-5 minutes. Depending on the type of air fryer you have, you may have to turn your Egg Rolls over with tongs and cook the other side. (Feel free to Bake or Pan-Fry).
DIPPING SAUCES: Best to make these early, and refrigerate to help the flavors meld.
Mustard Sauce: 4 TBSP Honey Dijon Mustard, 2 TBSP Yellow Mustard, 1 TBSP Rice Vinegar, 2 tsp Mustard Powder, ¼ + Cayenne Pepper (or Chipotle Powder).
Thousand Island Dressing, Use your favorite bottled dressing or make Homemade by combining ¼ + cup Ketchup, ¾ cup Mayo, 2 tsp Sweet Relish, 1 TBSP minced Onion, ½ tsp Garlic Powder, Pepper. (Optional half a Hard-Cooked Egg, finely chopped).
Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce: ¼ cup Mayo, 1 TBSP Prepared Mustard, 1 tsp Honey, 1 tsp Lemon Juice. Spice it up by adding a dab of Horseradish or ½ tsp Sriracha Sauce.
