Kimchi ‘Pancakes’ aka Kimchi Jun

Kimchi ‘Pancakes’ are a comfort side dish back at home. I recently met my mom and begged her to teach me how to make it…. and she finally gave in! I tried these today, and my oh my~brings me back home! 🙂 LOVE IT! Here is the super easy and quick recipe!

Things You Need (makes about four):

  • Good fermented Kimchi
  • Flour
  • Egg
  • Sugar


What to Do:

First get a good handful of kimchi and dice it up like so:


Next, crack open an egg in a bowl and break the egg yolk–mix mix mix! Next add in 2-3 spoonfuls of flour as well as a good pinchful of sugar. Eye the amount of flour you put in. You don’t want it too thick, but just enough so that you can make a good ‘pancake’ like batter.



Now add in the kimchi into the mixture.

Now heat up the pan with oil and when the pan is hot, put in a good spoonful of the mixture (like pancakes!).


Don’t forget to flip them over once!


You are done! These are delicious plain, or with a dipping sauce. Just in case you want to dip them in a sauce, here is my recipe for the sauce:

In a small sauce dish, put in about 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar. Next add in about 1/2 tablespoon of sugar and a good sprinkle of Korean Red Pepper Flakes. Top that off with a sprinkle of sesame seeds! For an added kick, you can dice up a little bit of green onions and mix it into the sauce.
