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:
- 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
- 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.
- In a large bowl, toss together cooked cabbage and carrots, Dijon mustard, shredded swiss cheese and roughly chopped corned beef.
- 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.
- Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the outside of the spring rolls with vegetable oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.
- Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees and place the spring rolls in to cook for 10-12 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time.
- Remove from air fryer and serve immediately with a grainy mustard for dipping.
