Recipe Notes


  • To achieve the crispy outer layer of the crepe, make sure that the pan is hot before pouring and spreading the crepe mixture. (要这么达到酥脆的煎饼外皮呢?确保锅是热的然后才把煎饼湖倒入锅里。)
  • Want to serve it beautifully in one piece? Use a non-stick frying pan and your crepe will slide it’s way out to the plate. (使用不粘锅来煎煎饼, 煮熟的煎饼就能漂亮的从锅里滑出。)
  • Pork liver has a good source of protein. But if you don’t like the taste of it, don’t worry, feel free to replace it with prawns or even chicken thigh. (猪肝有良好的蛋白质。但是,如果你不喜欢它的味道,不用担心,随时与虾甚至鸡腿来代替它。)
