Backstory

This is one of my father's favorite Northern Chinese appetizer dishes. This cake is thin, flat, crisp outside, chewy inside and bursting with onion flavor.

I like to serve them as street vendors in Beijing do: sliced into wedges and eaten out of

hand, plain or with a spicy chili-garlic dipping sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening.
  • lard, or cooking oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper

Directions

  • Combine dipping sauce ingredients in a bowl.
  • Cut Chinese Green Onion cakes into wedges.
  • Serve hot with dipping sauce.
