REUBEN EGG ROLLS
McGuire's Irish Pub Copycat Recipe
8 egg roll wrappers
1 1/2 cups sauerkraut, drained
1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds (or to taste)
1/2 lemon, juice of
6 ounces corned beef, thinly sliced, cut into strips
4 ounces swiss cheese, thinly sliced, cut into strips
1 egg, beaten with
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
1 cup vegetable oil, for frying
prepared thousand island dressing, for dipping
Saute sauerkraut and caraway in a skillet over medium high heat. When most of the moisture has evaporated and sauerkraut begins to brown, stir in lemon juice and set aside.
Arrange an egg roll wrapper on a work surface with a corner towards you; brush edges with egg wash. Place a strip of cheese on the wrapper, about 1 inch above the bottom corner, then top with strips of beef and about 3 tablespoons sauerkraut mixture. Drizzle with mustard. Fold the bottom corner up over the filling to enclose, fold in the sides, then roll to the top corner of the wrapper. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat to about 360 degrees. Add half the egg rolls and fry on all sides until brown and crisp, 5-7 minutes.Drain on paper towels while frying remaining rolls. Serve Egg Rolls with Thousand Island Dressing for dipping.
