These pancakes are traditionally served with Peking Duck but there are many other savory fillings like Moo Shoo Pork. I will post several possible fillings and you will be able to find them among my posted recipes
- Put unsifted flour in a bowl.
- Pour in all the boiling water at once stirring with the handle of a wooden spoon (or use your mixer with the bread paddle mix and knead for 5 minutes).
- When the dough is cool enough to handle knead for 10 minutes (this step is not necessary if you used your mixer).
- Whether you do this by hand or with the mixer the mixture is ready when it is a smooth, soft dough.
- Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Roll dough into a cylindrical shape and cut into 10 equal pieces.
- Keep covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying out.
- Take one slice at a time and cut in two equal pieces.
- On a lightly floured board roll each piece into a 3" circle.
- Brush one side of one of the 3" circle pancakes with Sesame oil, brush the oil right to the edge.
- Put the second 3 inch piece on top of the first and roll both pieces out into a pancake about 7 inches across.
- They must be very thin.
- Cover with plastic as each is made.
- When they are all rolled out heat a skillet or griddle, do not grease it.
- Put pancakes one at a time on the ungreased surface.
- Cook over low heat until pancake developes small bubbles.
- Turn frequently so that both sides are cooked (You'll see a few golden spots).
- Remove from pan and gently pull the two pancakes apart.
- This should go very easy because of the sesame oil that you brushed between them.
- Pile the pancakes on a plate, Put waxed paper between them and cover tightly with plastic wrap so they do not dry out.
- These pancakes will keep several days in the refrigerator.
- To reheat arrange pancakes in a steamer lined with a clean tea towel.
- Cover and put over simmering water for a minute or two.
- To serve fold pancake into quarters.
- The pancakes should be soft and pliable.
