Korean Picnic, Street, and Snack Food Recipes: Gyeran Mandu

계란 만두
Gyeran Mandu is kind of misleading ...
This street food offering is like a cross between mandu and omelet. The "stuffing" in this dish is very similar to classic mandu stuffing mixed with egg, and folded into mini omelets. Delicious!!!
Servings: 4
Recipe Type: Appetizer, Korean, Snack, Street Food, banchan

Image: Gyeran Mandu


4 oz Dangmyeon Noodles
3 oz soft tofu
5 large eggs
1/4 small carrot
1 small green onion
1 medium red Chili Pepper
2 Tbs Soy Sauce
1 Tbs Sesame Oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar


Soak Dangmyeon for one to two hours.
Place the tofu in a medium mixing bowl and mash with a spoon or potato masher.
Bring a medium pot of water to a rapid boil over high heat.
Add dangmyeon and boil for three to five minutes (desired tenderness)
Remove from heat and rinse thoroughly in cold water then drain well.
Place noodles on a cutting board and chop into small pieces. Transfer to mixing bowl. (or just place in mixing bowl and use kitchen shears to cut into small pieces.)
Cut the carrot into thin slices, then cut the slices into "threads" or "sticks" and chop into small pieces.
Chop the green onion and chili pepper into small pieces.
Add the vegetables and seasoning ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix.
Oil a flat skillet and heat over medium low heat.
Place a spoonful of the mix into the pan and spread slightly. Quickly repeat with one or two more spoonfuls.
After the egg lightly sets (about 30 seconds) gently use a spatula to fold the egg mix in half (use a spoon to hold the egg mix in place)
Cook until lightly browned (about one minute), then flip and again cook to a light brown.
Repeat until you have used all the mix.
Serve as a banchan dish, a snack, or as a light "breakfasty" meal with rice.

Have some fun by using a walnut cake pan: Spoon mixture into the mold depressions and cook over low heat, flipping the pan after one minute. Continue flipping pan until "Walnuts" are done (three to five minutes).

Substitute the tofu with chopped beef, pork, or chicken. Cook the meat before adding to mix.
