Kimchi Jun - Korean Style Kimchi Pancakes - (김치전)

I decided to make some Kimchi Jun this morning.

  • 1 cup Korean pancake mix
  • 1 cup (a little more) chopped up kimchi
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup kimchi juice (more or less)
  • 1 pack tofu
  • 1/2 cup scallions
  • 1/2 cup chopped up onions
  • 1 TB sesame oil
  • 1 TB minced garlic
  • dash of pepper
  • optional: 1/3 can of SPAM

First measure out approximately 1 cup of pancake mix.

Put the mix into a large bowl and add 1 egg and 1/4 cup of water. Mix it thoroughly with a whisk.

Then add one package of two-cup tofu (this is about half a normal size package).

Crumble up the tofu pieces using your hands and mix it thoroughly using the whisk to break up the tofu pieces.

Then add about 1/4 cup of kimchi juice.

A little more than 1 cup of chopped up kimchi...

Some green onions...

A splash of sesame oil, a dash of pepper, and 1 TB of minced garlic.

About 1/2 a cup of chopped up onions...

THEN...I actually went and added about 1/3 can of SPAM. =) You can skip the SPAM if you're not a fan.

Mix the batter as best as you can and you are now ready to fry it.

I like to coat my pans with PAM. It just helps make sure that the pan is evenly covered in grease so that the pancakes don't stick. You can just use regular oil too.

Scoop up some of the mixture and when the pan is hot, spread it out evenly and let it cook until it's browned on one side.

Flip it over and brown the other side...

And you're ready to serve! Continue until you've used all the batter. You can use a large pan and make 3-4 at once. I chose to use 2 separate smaller pans to make sure the pancakes came out pretty for this blog. =)
