You will need:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup boiling water



  1. Pour flour into medium bowl and add boiling water. Use a fork or wooden spoon to quickly stir mixture until it holds together into a rough ball of dough.

  2. When cool enough to pick up, place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead until tender and smooth, about ten minutes. Cover dough with towel and let rest for at least fifteen minutes (but no more than an hour).
  3. *Preparation Tip: A food processor can be used for the first two steps, if preferred.

  4. Roll dough into foot long roll, and cut into 8 equal pieces. Then, cut each piece in half to create 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth ball and flatten each of them into a disk.

  5. Put couple of drops of sesame oil on top of each disk, and press two of disks together with the oil sides facing each other.

  6. On lightly floured surface, roll out each double disk into flat pancakes that are about five to six inches in diameter.

  8. Heat large skillet over medium-low heat until hot. Place a double disk pancake in center and cook for one minute. Pancake will start bubbling and expanding a bit. Turn over gently for another 45 seconds, until tender. Don’t worry if a few brown spots show up!

  9. Transfer to serving plate and separate two pancakes. Stack them, oil side up, on plate, and cover to keep warm while remaining pancakes are being prepared.


  • Fill with Mu Shu Pork and sprinkle with hoisin sauce.
