Memil Jeonbyeong (Buckwheat Crepe)-Style Fresh Spring Rolls

Memil Jeonbyeong (Buckwheat Crepe)-Style Fresh Spring Rolls

Make an easy Korean memil jeonbyeong (chongtteok) with rice paper wrappers. I make these fresh spring rolls often for a snack.

Ingredients: makes 6 spring rolls

Rice paper wrappers
└ Salt
1/4 teaspoon
Daikon radish (medium)
1/3 (about 300 g)
5 cm
Nappa cabbage kimchi
as much as you like
Garlic (minced)
1-2 cloves
Beef stock (e.g. dashida)
2/3-1 tablespoon
a small amount
Roasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1 tablespoon


1. Julienne the daikon radish and carrot.
2. Add the sesame oil and minced garlic to a skillet and turn on the heat.
3. Once the garlic is fragrant, add the daikon radish and carrot. Sauté to evaporate the liquid.
4. Once the daikon radish is tender, add the beef stock and sauté it. Sprinkle on the pepper and roasted sesame seeds for a finishing touch and spread onto a serving plate to cool.
5. Beat the eggs and salt together and make a few paper-thin omelets. Cut the omelets into narrow strips.
6. Pass the rice paper wrappers through a bowl of water and spread them onto a cutting board or a large plate. Place the daikon mixture in a long thin row on the rice paper 1/3 of the way from the end closest to you.
7. Place the lightly drained kimchi on top of the daikon mixture.
8. Wrap the ingredients once with the rice paper wrapper from the closest edge to you, then spread the thinly sliced egg omelet. It's easier to wrap the eggs this way and also it looks beautiful in see though wrapper.
9. Instead of wrapping it like fresh spring rolls to seal the both edges, just roll up like memil jeonbyeong.
10. Cut into bite-sized or about 4-5 equal pieces. They are delicious as they are, so serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

Memil jeonbyeong is a chewy buckwheat crepe with namul, kimchi, Korean BBQ meat, cellophane noodles and other fillings, but I made an easy version by wrapping with rice paper wrappers.
