My favorite dishes are 京酱肉丝 and 黑椒牛柳. Quite simple but delicious.

Beer pancakes

Pancakes are one of the easiest things, that You can cook.
And very quick... if You are experienced - preparation takes a minute or two, then about 1-2 minutes per cake when frying.

Because it is cheap dish - You can practice it with many variations, until You will be the Master of the Pancakes.

Taste of beer-based pancakes is a bit sweet, and with almost untraceable bitter, with significant beer aroma, so if You don’t like beer – replace it with the milk.

level: easy
preparation time: 3-5 minutes
cooking time: about 1-2 minutes for each pancake

ingredients
(for about 6 thick, or at list 10 thin pancakes)



-         2eggs

-         1can of beer

-         wheat flour

-         salt (up to Your taste)

-         oil (2-3 table spoons)


preparation:

stir the eggs with the salt


add the beer, and stir again


add some flour,and mix until equal


then add some oil, and mix very well


tip: if You want to have thick pancakes – final mixture should be more dense,if thinner – completely liquid like an oil (add more flour, or more beer)



cooking:

heat the pan well (with a bit of oil)
and pour in enough mixture to cover bottom of the pan


fry on one side until sides will rise a bit – then add a little oil (no more, then a tablespoon), and move pancake over a pan, to equally distribute oil


fry until golden, and reverse on other side



serving:


You canserve it as it is, fresh fried, with any sauce You like, of with some filling

or... You can fry it crispy with some filling


Frying with filling:

Add filling on the pancakes (I used fried minced meat with garlic, so I had to use some “glue” to avoid “unwanted escape” on the pan… hoi-sin sauce was a good choice, but anyother that matches the filling – up Your taste – is good)







Fold it any way You like – in example I used roll, and ¼ fold





And then fry until crispy outside


using thinner layer of filing - You can have "slim" pancakes
on the picture - only with hoisin sauce
