Beef Filling:
  • 1 package of Old Neighborhood Beef Shaved Steak
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 star anise
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 3 scallions, chopped into 2 inch strips
  • 1 tbsp. rice wine
  • 1 tsp. Chinese 5-spice
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp. cooking oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • Vegetable oil
  • 5 stalks of scallions, diced
  • salt to taste
Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/2 part broth from beef filling
  • 1/2 part hoisin sauce
  1. Combine all of the beef filling ingredients in a slow cooker, and cook for at least an hour and a half. If you don’t want to use a slow cooker, you can combine all the ingredients in an oven-safe pot, bring it to a boil, cover and transfer to the oven, cooking at 350 degrees for at least an hour.
  2. For the pancakes, combine the flour and the water in a bowl. Knead until the dough is smooth. Cover in plastic wrap or a damp cloth for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into 4 portions.
  4. Taking one portion and using a rolling pin, flatten it into a 1/4 inch (or thinner) thick circle.
  5. Spread some vegetable oil on top and sprinkle with a bit of salt.
  6. Cover the dough with ¼ portion of the diced scallions.
  7. Taking one “side” of the circle, roll the dough into a long cylinder.
  8. Next, roll the cylinder into a pinwheel. Secure the end if needed.
  9. Flatten the pinwheel with your hand, and then using the rolling pin, roll it into a circle of about 8 inches in diameter.
  10. Heat a frying pan on the stove over medium heat. Coat with a bit of cooking oil.
  11. Fry both sides of the pancake until browned.
  12. To make the beef rolls, take one scallion pancake. Take ¼ portion of the cooked beef and line it in the center.
  13. Next, taking the side closest to you, fold or roll the pancake over the beef, and cut into three portions.
  14. Repeat steps 4-13 for the remaining 3 portions of dough and beef.
  15. Serve with the dipping sauce and enjoy.
