Before I share recipes on the blog I like to do lots of testing and experimenting, and since I got a new air fryer I have been doing just that.After lots of trials with a variety of dishes, I’m excited to share my first air fryer recipe today: air fryer corned beef and cabbage spring rolls for St. Patrick’s Day! Corned beef and cabbage always reminds me of my as-Irish-as-they-come grandpa, a dish my as-Italian-as-they-come grandma would make for him on St. Patrick’s Day (it was a lot of meatballs and lasagna the other 364 days a year and he didn’t complain!). This version has a modern twist, and I think would be quite fun to make as an appetizer to enjoy on St. Patrick’s Day while sipping your favorite Irish beer. The ingredients get rolled up in a spring roll wrapper (wonton wrappers would work well too!) and crisped up quickly in the air fryer. Serve it was a good grainy mustard for dipping! Get the recipe below:

Air Fryer Corned Beef and Cabbage Spring Rolls.
Serves: 5-6 pieces
  • 1 Cup of Red and Green Cabbage, shredded
  • ½ Cup of Carrots, shredded
  • 1 Tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • ⅓ Cup of Swiss Cheese, shredded
  • 1 Cup of Corned Beef, roughly chopped (you can use leftover corned beef or slices from the deli counter)
  • 6 Spring Roll or Wonton Wrappers
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Grainy Mustard, for serving
  1. In a small sauté pan, heat a drizzle of vegetable oil and add cabbage and carrots to cook for 4-5 minutes, until slightly softened. Season lightly with salt and pepper and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together cooked cabbage and carrots, Dijon mustard, shredded swiss cheese and roughly chopped corned beef.
  3. Use the corned beef mixture to fill 5-6 spring roll wrappers, tightly rolling (like a burrito) and sealing with a brush of warm water.
  4. Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the outside of the spring rolls with vegetable oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.
  5. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees and place the spring rolls in to cook for 10-12 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time.
  6. Remove from air fryer and serve immediately with a grainy mustard for dipping.
