Cheese Jeon with Shio-kombu and Pork

Cheese Jeon with Shio-kombu and Pork

These are thin jeon seasoned with shio-kombu with a nice smell of fried cheese.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

●Plain flour
100 g
165 g
15 g (5 g + 10 g)
Pork offcuts or pork belly
80 g
Chinese chives
about 50 g (1/2 bunch)
Cheese (easy melting type)
50 g
Sesame oil and black pepper
as needed


1. Cut the pork into small pieces. Mix the pork with 5 g of shio-kombu and 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil and leave to stand (it's also delicious with grated garlic.)
2. Meanwhile cut the Chinese chives into 1-cm widths. Mix the ● ingredients well.
3. Add the Chinese chives, cheese and pork from Step 1 into the mixed ● ingredients (mix well until everything is well combined).
4. Stir in the rest of shio-kombu.
5. Heat sesame oil or vegetable oil in a frying pan. Place a good portion of the batter into the pan and fry.
6. Once the bottom is golden brown, flip over. Press down with a spatula.
7. When both sides are crispy and brown, it is done (I made eleven 7-8 cm diameter jeon).
8. Sprinkle with coarsely ground black pepper (or ichimi spice if you like it spicy).
