Corned Beef and Cabbage Egg Rolls with Homemade Beer Mustard

1 hr to make, makes 12 egg rolls

Ingredients

Meat

  • 1 lb Deli-style corned beef

Produce

  • 1 1/2 cups Green cabbage
  • 1/2 tsp Onion powder

Refrigerated

  • 1 Egg wash

Condiments

  • 2/3 cup Honey mustard

Baking & Spices

  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds

Oils & Vinegars

  • 1 Canola or vegetable oil

Bread & Baked Goods

  • 12 Egg rolls wrappers

Dairy

  • 4 tbsp Butter, unsalted
  • 8 oz Cheddar cheese, sharp
  • 2 tbsp Sour cream

Beer, Wine & Liquor

  • 1 cup Ale beer, brown

Instructions

  • Beer Mustard
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the mustard seeds, onion powder and beer. Whisk to combine and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the beer has reduced by about half. Whisk in the mustard and continue cooking for about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a container to cool. Once cool, whisk in the sour cream. Cover and place the beer mustard in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
  • Corned Beef and Cabbage Egg Rolls
  • Pour the oil into a large pot or dutch oven until it reaches about an inch up the side of the pot. Heat it over medium heat to a temperature of 375 degrees F.
  • While the oil is heating up, prepare your egg rolls. Set up a station with all of your fillings: corned beef, green cabbage and cheddar cheese. Starting with 1 egg roll wrapper, place a few slices of corned beef, 1 slice of cheese, and about a tablespoon or two of cabbage onto the lower 1/3 of the wrapper. Roll the egg roll up by rolling the ingredients into the wrapper away from you, fold in the sides about halfway through the roll, and then continue rolling until completely in tact. Taking a bit of egg wash, seal where necessary. Place it on a plate, and continue with the remaining egg roll wrappers.
  • Once the oil is hot, add one of the egg rolls and fry for about 1 minute on each side. Do this first step with only one egg roll so that you know the oil is at the right temperature. Remove the egg roll from the oil, and transfer it to a plate that has been lined with a paper towel. Continue this step for the rest of the egg rolls. At this point, you may add 2-3 egg rolls at a time. Just make sure to not overcrowd the pan.
