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..
1 cup of cold water
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
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.
