Pasanjeok is one of the dishes that Koreans make usually on festival days. Pan-fried skewered pancake with green onion, carrot, and beef! It already sounds colorful, nutritious, and delicious, doesn’t it?
Pasanjeok remains a happy memory of my childhood. My mother, a school teacher, used to teach and live on an island where our family lived. My father was a businessman in a city on the mainland. When my father sometime came to see us, we had been in festive mood for days before he came. He usually came with some presents for us.
My mother made pasanjeok only when he visited us. I remember how happy she was when she prepared my father’s favorite food. When I saw my mother placing these colorful green onion, carrot, and beef on skewers and cooking, I felt very happy. The happiness came from not only the expectation of eating delicious food, but also I could see my father soon! So when the word pasanjeok comes up, I can’t help thinking about my father. Pasanjeok and my father are overlapped in my imagination. : )
I added asparagus to the ingredients in the recipe because I found it gives a crunchy texture so that all these colorful ingredients are well incorporated. Each ingredient is slightly dipped in a light flour batter and cooked. You will enjoy 4-5 different textures and flavors at the same time when you eat it.
As I mentioned in the video, if you use only beef, you can say, “soegogi sanjeok.” If you use mushrooms, you can call it beoseot sanjeok. (beosoeot is mushrooms in Korean)
Enjoy the recipe!
