Korean Yachaejeon Pancake with Smoky-Spicy Citrus Dip (VGN)

// Get ready to cook:


1. To prepare the dip, add Korean Apple Bulgogi and orange juice to a saucepan. Heat on a medium heat and simmer until reduced by half. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, add spring onions, leek, carrot and red pepper. Add chickpea flour, Korean Apple Bulgogi and plant based milk. Mix well until evenly coated.

3. Heat a 12-inch non-stick frying pan to medium-high heat. Add oil then pancake mixture, spreading evenly. Lower heat to medium-low and cook without moving for 6-7 mins. Check occasionally to ensure the pancake is not burning and adjust heat accordingly.

4. Flip the pancake over (using a plate for assistance if needed) then raise the heat to medium-high and cook for a further 3-4 mins.

5. Before serving, sprinkle the dip with chilli flakes and smoked paprika. Tear or cut into bite sized pieces and enjoy!

Korean Apple Bulgogi

Korean Apple Bulgogi


Our Korean Bulgogi takes us to Seoul’s gogi-jib barbecue houses and the unique Korean cooking culture of gogi-gui i.e. the grilling of meats over charcoal grills which are built into the dining tables. It is inspired by one of the best loved gogi-gui dishes, bulgogi (meaning “fire meat”), comprising thinly sliced beef marinated in a special Korean marinade then char-grilled to perfection!
