Heirloom Beef Pancakes

Dive into a family tradition that spans decades with this recipe for Heirloom Beef Pancakes. Crafted with love and simplicity, these savory pancakes have been a cherished delight, combining the heartiness of beef with the subtle freshness of chives or green onions, all wrapped in a homemade dough.

Dough Ingredients:

  • 350g Flour
  • 3g Salt
  • 100g Hot Water (80℃ or 176°F)
  • 110g Cold Water
  • 10g Oil (vegetable or canola)

Filling Ingredients:

  • 250g Ground Beef
  • 150g Chives or Green Onions, finely chopped
  • 10g Sesame Oil or Olive Oil
  • 2g Salt
  • 10g Soy Sauce
  • A pinch of Cinnamon Powder
  • 1g Black Pepper Powder


  1. Prepare the Dough: In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Gradually add the hot water, stirring continuously, followed by the cold water. Mix until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Drizzle with 10g of oil, cover, and let it rest while preparing the filling.
  2. Make the Filling: In a separate bowl, mix the ground beef with chopped chives or green onions, sesame oil (or olive oil), salt, soy sauce, cinnamon powder, and black pepper powder. Combine thoroughly to ensure the flavors meld together.
  3. Assemble the Pancakes: Divide the rested dough into equal portions. Roll each piece into a thin circle. Place a portion of the beef filling in the center of each circle. Fold and seal the edges to enclose the filling completely, forming a pancake.
  4. Cook the Pancakes: Heat a skillet over medium heat and lightly oil it. Place the beef pancakes in the skillet, cooking them for about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and the beef is cooked through.
  5. Serve Warm: Enjoy these hearty beef pancakes hot, ideally with a side of soy sauce for dipping or any sauce of your choice.

These Heirloom Beef Pancakes offer a taste of tradition and comfort with every bite. The recipe is a testament to the simple, yet profound joy that cooking and sharing a family meal can bring.
