This korean “street food” is delicious, filling and very healthy! They are quick and easy to make especially when prepping vegetables. You can bag up the extras in sandwich bags for all week cooking! Prepped veggies will keep up to a week!
Makes 2 servings or 1 large pancake: pancake 278.2 calories per serving, sauce 30 calories per serving total: 308.2 calories
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 large eggs
1/2 cup rice flour (or all-purpose flour, unbleached)
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 cup julienne sweet baby bell pepper
1/4 cup broccoli slaw mix
2Tbs to 1/4 cup chopped green onion (depending on your taste for onion)
1/2 cup cold water
3 Tbs. rice wine vinegar
3 Tbs. low sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
For dipping sauce, add rice wine vinegar, soy sauce and sugar in sauce bowl and mix well. Set aside.
In medium sized bowl, whisk eggs until just frothy. Add flour and salt and whisk to combine. Add vegetables and incorporate. Add water as needed to loosen up the batter and make it somewhat thin (thinner than pancake batter). I usually end up using all of the water.
In a medium sized frying pan, heat oil on medium heat. Once oil is ready, add pancake mixture into pan and let cook until brown and crispy on bottom. An easier way to do this is to watch the center of the pancake. Once you can see it hardening about half way, it’s time to flip it.
Using your magic pancake flipping skills, flip pancake. If your skills aren’t that great, use 2 spatulas, carefully lifting and flipping the pancake. It will break easily. Cook through until crispy on bottom. (Poke into the pancake with a fork and look for the batter being completely cooked through.
Slide pancake onto a plate and slice like a pizza. Serve hot with dipping sauce.
You can eat these with your fingers or a fork, but they are a finger food in Korea, like buying a slice of pizza in Brooklyn!
For added flavor, (also known as Buchu Pa Jeon) add a 1/4 cup of chopped meat of your choice. I prefer small precooked, cleaned and de-tailed shrimp but you can use any left over meats you may have available and precooked in your fridge!
