Gochujang Pancakes

Easy gochujang pancakes! 

Gochujang Pancakes (JangTteok) | MyKoreanKitchen.com

Gochujang pancakes are called Jang-Tteok in Korean.

The word “Jang” (장) means seasoning, like soy sauce (Ganjang, 간장), soybean paste (Doenjang, 된장), or chilli paste (Gochujang, 고추장). Therefore “Jang-Tteok” (장떡) means pancakes seasoned with some kind of sauce that I mentioned earlier.

Its name can be varied depending on the type of sauce, vegetable and/or meat you use when cooking.

Today’s version is “perilla leaf pancake”. The aroma from perilla leaves combined with spicy gochujang produces a really delicious smell and flavor. It’s a perfect Korean side dish!

Hope you give it a try soon!

  1. I made these tonight after going to a Korean grocery store near Atlanta. Man, are they good! I wanted to try sesame leaves, so I tried this first. I was afraid of the red pepper paste and green chili, but the heat level wasn’t bad. I might even add more next time.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Thank you for this recipe! I do have a question: pajun recipes usually have egg, but this one doesn’t?!? Should I use an egg to make the batter? Thanks!

  3. Hello, tellos
    Thanks for visiting. You’ve been to Korea before hey, I hope you had a good time here. I know some people make buchigae with a waffle maker, it seems to turn out well. I hope your idea does too. 🙂
