-Start by browning the beef in the skillet.
-Try to brown without breaking up the meat too much, get a nice brown sear on the beef, then break apart as little as possible. (You want the meat to resemble a pea in size [you want to avoid taco meat consistency]).
-Add the salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce, stir gently and remove from pan.
-Add the butter in the pan and add the chopped onions and green bell pepper, cooking until browned and caramelized.
-Once browned, add the meat back in and combine together.
-Let the mixture cool while you prepare your egg roll wrappers and cheese.
-Lay them on a flat surface and place a half a slice of American cheese on the wrapper.
-Add three tablespoons of the meat mixture on top of the cheese.
-Starting from the bottom left pull corner over the meat, then fold the two sides in.
-Wet the edges and roll tightly.
-Set a pan to heat with canola oil, about an inch high would do the trick.
-Add 3-4 egg rolls in them at once.
-Once they have browned, you can take them out and dry them on a cooling rack or brown paper bag.
