Beef Wrapped Scallion Pankcakes

Hope everyone had a great weekend so far! A few nights ago, I made beef wrapped scallion pancakes for dinner.  Scallions pancakes are so yummy and super easy to make. You can usually get these at Chinese/Taiwanese restaurants as appetizers. They are light, crispy, + flaky. If you want to make them at home, you can buy them in ready made frozen packages at Asian markets.

I usually defrost the pancakes before I shallow fry them in a cast iron skillet. If not, they burn too fast on the outside and still doughy in the center. We usually enjoy these alone as appetizers. This time, however, I made beef wrapped scallion pancakes and had them as the main course.

My recipe is not the original/typical way that beef wrapped scallion pancakes are made. I added my own ingredients. Usually, you would wrap the pancakes w/ beef and scallions. Instead, I sauteed onions and baby portabella (w/ salt + pepper) and skipped the scallions.

I used shaved beef and sauteed w/ cilantro, oyster sauce, soy sauce, salt, + pepper.

Avocados, cilantro, + romaine lettuce- again not the typical ingredients for this dish.

Self explanatory…

Dipping sauce can be almost anything- plum sauce, soy sauce, hoisin, red chili sauce..your choice! Here’s a recipe to make scallion pancakes from scratch (almost).

Have you cooked recently?  If so, what did you make? Please share!

‘Til next post, Kellie.
