We were hosting a soldier while he was on leave and he's originally South Korean. I made a southern fritter one night for snacks and he mentioned Korean Pancakes he mom used to make... so I watched while he made them. Ate them. Now addicted to them.
Theyre really cheap as far as ingredients and easy as heck to make. I wanted to share with you all.. easy enough for camping food on open fire and a cast iron pan too!
I have a 5 person family so I double and triple this recipe..

2 eggs
1cup flour
1 cup of cold water
some salt
some very small cut up cabbage, onions, green onions/scallions, shallots.. whatever.. or a variety of veg/roots.

beat your egg
add in your water
whisk in your flour
throw in your veg
swirl all that up real good
We used a deep cast iron pan and a bit of oil.. I really like the taste if I use dark sesame oil... get it VERY hot so you can crisp it rather than have a fluffy thing. It just tastes better crisped.
Pour your mixture in the pan to where its pretty even and let it cook to where its easily slid off onto a plate cooked side down and then slide it back into the pan cooked side up. Be careful or youll have a hot oil tsunami.
WHen its nice and cooked.. crispy on ends too... slide it on a cutting board and cut it up like a pizza.
If youre really slick.. flip it .
when you serve it, mix this up for a dipping sauce :
equal parts of soy sauce, white rice vinegar, and dark sesame oil. throw in some minced garlic and chives




***PREPPER HINT****
You can do this with dried long term storage items too.
I experimented with "Ova easy" eggs from Honeyville Farms and freeze dried shallots, green onions, cabbage, and peppers from Nu Harvest foods.

Love those babys, the ex added a japanese twist to it, dried tuna flakes, we also used a mix of mayonaise and bull dog sauce(Hps japanese version), to put on top, so yummy.

That really sounds and looks good. I always make pancakes crispy, frying them in a combination of refined coconut oil and butter. Who cares if it isn't healthy that way, it tastes good and gives you plenty of energy for hours.


They have something like that at the Chinese buffet restaurant we go to all the time but I have never tried it. It also has a sauce to go with it, it looks like a soy based sauce like what you mentioned.

I can't wait to try these! I am going to add some diced Jalapeno's to mine! And after I've fried a couple, I'll throw some pineapple into the mix and see what happens!
I love having breakfast for dinner, so this looks like the perfect recipe!

Why the hell would a person want onions on a pancake?
That's like wanting maple syrup on spaghetti.

That looks good.
Now if I could only get over the current plague sweeping through the house to go buy some shallots or something.

Another recipe that is close in simplicity is the fry bread. I learned this from my Navajo shimá sáni. Basically flour (Blue Bird if you can get it), some water, and a little salt. No measurements, just use enough water to make it doughy. After kneading it for a bit, take a glob and pull it to a nice round circular shape (don't roll it) and then fry it in melted lard (yes lard lol--fry bread tastes better cooked in lard than it does in shortening lol) til golden.

Awesome. Fry bread is godly. I saw a place selling something like Navajo tacos and ordered one. The interpretation was frightening and the bread was sweet.


Still scarred by that, lol. Now it's a toss up--fry bread or korean pancakes...decisions, decisions!

P.S. the people running the place were probably carnie folk that picked up the idea out there and then did very, very bad things with it. Going to hunt down your thread.
