Chinese Food Home Easy Dinner Recipes Moo Shu Pork Mandarin Pancakes


This pan cake is very thin, called "Bao Bing" in Mandarin. "Bao" means "thin", "Bing" means "pan cake". It goes with Mu Xu Pork (Moo Shu Pork) in some areas; wrap the Moo Shu pork in it to enjoy. It can also be enjoyed by itself.


  • All-purpose flour -- 2 cups
  • Boiling water -- 1 cup
  • Salt -- 1 teaspoon
  • Dark sesame oil -- 1 1/2 tablespoons


  1. Combine flour and water in a large bowl to form a soft dough.

  2. Lightly flour the surface of a cutting board and knead the dough until smooth and elastic.

  3. Shape the dough into a 1 1/2-inch-thick log. Divide the dough into 16 equal portions.

  4. Roll each dough portion into a 6-inch circle and brush 8 pancakes evenly with oil.

  5. Top each with one of the remaining pancakes, gently pressing together.

  6. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place 1 pancake stack in pan, and cook 1 minute on each side or until slightly puffed.

  7. Remove from pan, and cool. Peel pancakes apart.

  8. Repeat the process for the rest of the pan cakes.

  9. Serve with Moo Shu Pork.
