Here's The Fast And Easy $4 Dinner I've Been Making All Through Quarantine
Ten minutes, four ingredients — and a (very easy) recipe that my family has used for years.
Hi! My name's Victoria, and Korean pancakes (or jeon) have always been a staple in my life. Nearly every day after elementary school, I'd go to my grandparents' house in New Jersey, and my aunt would have Korean pancakes fresh off the pan, ready to go for me and my sister.
Then, I went away to college in Los Angeles and didn't expect to eat it much. I was so wrong. Enter: K-town dive bars. My friends and I would never not order kimchi pancakes. It wasn't even a question at the table. And thus, my love for Korean pancakes lived on.
Now, as a forcibly functioning adult, I make my own pajeon and kimchi jeon at home using my aunt's recipe (originally from my grandmother) whenever the mood** strikes. They're super affordable and simple to make. Here's how!
