Korean mung bean pancakes, called bindaetteok, are a delicious, savory, irresistible meal in themselves. Packed with ingredients: ground mung beans, rice, kimchi, pork, vegetables, egg, and full of seasonings, they are hearty and unforgettable. I make the pancakes in big batches and keep the leftovers in the freezer, wrapping them individually in plastic wrap and then putting the wrapped pancakes into a zipper-lock bag. Whenever I want one or two as a quick meal, I thaw them out and pan fry them with a few drops of vegetable oil.
Korean pancakes are an essential part of Korean cuisine, and I knew that when I wrote Real Korean Cooking I needed a whole chapter devoted to them. Between my book and my website I’ve still barely begun to post all the recipes for the many varieties of Korean pancakes!
When I was in university, me and my friends used to go to the bindaetteok place and have a pancake with makgeolli. Those two really go well together! And both are pretty filling, so in the course of eating and drinking together we consumed a complete, well-rounded meal.
This recipe is the same one in my cookbook, and the same one I’ve been using for years and years. I learned it from my friend whose parents-in-law were born in North Korea and taught her their local version of this dish. Complete credit for this goes to my friend in Korea who first showed it to me. As her parents-in-law shared it with her, I share it with you.
The fernbrake (gosari) is traditionally foraged in the wild, but can be found these days in most Korean supermarkets. It can take some some effort to find but really adds an earthy dimension to this dish that makes it unique. But if you can’t find it, skip it.
