Korean Pa Jun (egg pancakes) is an easy to prepare recipe. I have fond memories of these from my days as a Zen student living in a temple with a Korean Zen Master, and the daily fare was largely Korean. It makes a great snack, or an appetizer, or a side dish to an Asian meal.Just see how yummy this looks!
Korean Pa Jun can be tweaked to your own tastes; almost anything goes as long as the basic eggs, flour and scallions are included. I like to spice them up with some hot peppers, and add some sweet bell peppers as well. You can also experiment with the ratio of eggs to flour you desire, achieving anywhere from a heavy, thick texture to light and fluffy.

If you are up for a super hot & spicy Chinese meal, then Crispy Szechuan Orange Beef is for you. You can, of course, control the level of hot & spicy by the amount of hot chili peppers the recipe calls for.

Capsaicin is the colorless and odorless chemical that is what’s hot about hot peppers. So enjoy your Szechuan Crispy Orange Beef at whatever level of hot & spicy suits your fancy. Just don’t go too mild, or it’s no longer a legitimate Szechuan dish.
