Awesome Chilli Beef Pancakes

 Here is a picture of the Chilli Beef Pancakes we ate for dinner tonight – they might not look very pretty but boy do they taste delicious.

My whole family adores these – I’ve even served them up before now at a dinner party and they have gone down very well.
They are called “Chilli Beef Pancakes”.
.
The pancake batter is made by adding 2 teaspoons of Chinese 5-spice at the same time as the flour, which gives a lovely spiced depth to the flavour.
The filling is made by frying together spring onions, garlic, root ginger and beef strips; then add 1 tsp brown sugar, 1 tsp cider vinegar & 1 tbsp soy sauce.
.
If you wanted to make them a bit more colourful, not to mention healthier, you could add some crunchy veg – I’m thinking yellow, orange & red peppers and maybe some pak choi.  We very rarely eat red meat, so tend to keep them nice and meaty as it is such an occasional treat.
.
We’re all so full just now we can hardly move but would gladly eat them all over again!
Yum!
