Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 6 wonton wrappers
  • 1 Pound corned beef, diced
  • 8 Ounces Swiss cheese, grated
  • 1/2 Cup julienned carrot
  • 1/2 Cup julienned celery
  • 1/2 Cup sauerkraut
  • 1 Teaspoon caraway seeds, toasted and ground
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Thousand Island dressing, for serving

Directions

In a bowl, combine the egg and milk and whisk well to make an egg wash.

Lay out the wrappers on a work surface and coat the wrappers with the egg wash. Divide the corned beef equally among the wrappers. Top with the cheese, followed by the carrot and celery. In another bowl, mix together the sauerkraut and caraway seeds. Top with the sauerkraut mixture.

Start with any corner and roll over the top of the corned beef mixture. Then, fold in each side and continue to roll. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Fill a deep skillet, pot, or deep-fryer 1/3 full with oil. Heat the oil to 350 degrees and line a plate with paper towels. Fry the egg rolls until golden brown. Serve with Thousand Island dressing.

Corned Beef Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Corned Beef Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.

Corned Beef Wine Pairing

Most red wines, including cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, nebbiolo, nero d'avola, primitivo, barbera, and sangiovese.
