What you need:
32 oz Marconi Premium Blend Cooking Oil
1 package Spring Roll Skins
1/2 Pound your favorite sliced and seasoned Italian Beef
1 Jar Marconi Giardiniera. (Any Heat Level you prefer)
8 oz Shredded Cheese * (We use mozzarella, but whatever you like works even if you want to skip the cheese all together)
1 Cup Chopped Spinach and Broccoli Straws
1 Cup Beef Juice/Drippings/Gravy
What to do:
In a small Sauce Pan, heat oil to a temperature of between 350-375 Degrees. *
Monitor oil temperature at all times, and do not leave unattended.
While oil heats up, prep your spring skins. We use a rice based store bought skin for this application. Before filling, these need to be soaked in water to hydrate for rolling. We actually soaked them in the beef drippings/juice to hydrate. They only need to rest in the liquid for a few seconds, enough to work with and roll.
Once hydrated, take your skin out of the liquid and lay flat on a dry surface.
On the far side of one of the skins, place a piece of Beef, your vegetable mix and cheese, and a nice teaspoon of Giardiniera. What you are going for is enough filling to get an even bite. Roll tightly the shell around the filling in a shape of an eggroll.
Place on paper towel to allow to dry for a few minutes.
Once dry, drop the eggroll in your frying pot with a long set of metal tongs and let fry for 1- 2 minutes or until it becomes a nice golden brown.
Set each out out on a drying rack or another paper towel to dry for another 2-3 minutes and enjoy while still hot!
*Here are some safety points to keep in mind when deep frying at home:
Deep-fried foods are a tradition in many families, and when done properly, there’s very little danger involved. Follow the tips below to ensure safety while deep frying at home:
- If using a pot to deep fry, make sure to have the following equipment ready: metal tongs, thermometer with pot clip, a large, heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid; baking soda or all-purpose flour
- If using a purchased deep fryer, read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully
- Never leave a deep fryer unattended
- Use a thermometer to regulate oil temperature properly
- Don’t overfill a fryer or pot with oil; foods will displace oil and may cause spillage
- Wear long-sleeves while frying in case of splatter
- If frying a turkey or other large foods, it’s best to deep fry outside
- Foods dropped into hot oil should be dry(ish) and free of excess water, marinades, etc.
- Always allow oil to fully cool before handling or discarding
In case of fire:
- Do not use water to put out the fire
- Do not attempt to move the pan, pot, or fryer
- Cover pot or pan with a heavy lid
- Douse fire with baking soda or all-purpose flour to smother flames
- Do not attempt to fight the fire if it spreads
- Call 911
