BooChoo Jun – 부추 전

This past weekend was definitely a much needed break for our family.  We spent *every* single day together out and about and doing something or another.  I already mentioned in my previous post that we stocked up on groceries.  While at the store, they were having a *sale* on boo-choo (Korean chives), so I decided to stock up and make some jun/jeon.

I washed and cleaned THREE bunches of boochoo.  I used one bunch for the moo che and had TWO bunches leftover so I decided to make some boochoo jun.


Ingredients Needed:

  • 2 bunches of boochoo
  • 3/4 cup water, 1 CUP Korean Pancake mix
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 2 red peppers
  • 1/4 cup julienne carrots and 1/4 sliced small onion
  • PAM cooking spray

Start off by washing and drying two bunches of boochoo!

I cut it all up into about one inch pieces.  It’s inside the tupperware because I had cut it up the previous night!


Measure about 1 CUP of Korean Pancake mix…

Add roughly a cup of water.

Make sure you mix it really well before adding the vegetables. 

Add some carrots and onions if you like.  If you don’t have it, don’t worry about it!


Then throw in the two bunches of boochoo and season it a little with a dash of salt and pepper.

Mix it all around!

Cut up some red peppers.

Grease a large pan and put down about 1/4 cup of jun.  Put in as many *juns* as you can fit into your pan.  Place a piece of red pepper on top in the middle…

…and then flip it over to make sure you get both sides!

Tada!  You’re all done.  I know this recipe has very little pancake mix.  I tend to make it this way because I like the rich flavor of the boochoo.  You can easily add more mix and water to get it more *pancake* like.

ENJOY!  The MR devoured each and every one of them.  I’m so happy I married a man that knows how to eat!  =)  Hope everyone is having a good week so far.
