This savory pancake is a great snack, appetizer or side dish. It’s a great use of extra veggies. Served with an Asian dipping sauce. Yum!
Hot off the griddle, that’s how I like them. Jeon, or Korean Pancakes, are made of a filling, usually vegetables, and a thin Korean pancake batter made with flour, water and egg.
It is seasoned however you like and it’s great with left over veggies or too many veggies from your garden. A savory dish, it is well suited as an appetizer, snack or a side dish to your main entree. A delicious Asian sauce completes this dish with soy, sesame, vinegar and onions.
This recipe is inspired by all of Maangchi’s pancake recipes. Her YouTube channel is a great and entertaining resource if you are just learning to cook Korean food. I have had so much success with this easy dish that it is now my go-to recipe when I need to burn up some veggies.
Very versatile, other ingredients you can use include potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, scallions, chives, cabbage, carrots, kimchi, fish, shrimp, tuna, only limited to your imagination. The sauce can be made hot with the addition of chiles or red pepper flakes such as gochugaru or gochujang.
