a little taste of home
One of my favorite things from home is a little filled chinese pancake, basically a flattened bao zi that's pan seared. My dad makes these are home, and I've recently attempted it myself after being without homecooked food for months!
|Filling with chinese chives - jiu cai|
|chopped raw shrimp|
|Combined with scrambled eggs, salt, sesame oil, and an egg white to bind it all together|
|Wrapping little steamed buns - bao zi|
The secret of the pancake is that it's really just a bao zi, on crack. After very gently flattening these babies out, I pan fry them in a thick skillet with just a small amount of oil - enough to coat the pan.
|Cook 5-7 min on each size covered on medium/low heat.|
