Taiwanese Beef Rolls InstantPot Recipe Pancake Crepes nomss.com food blog

One of my favourite things to order at a Taiwanese restaurant is their Green Onion Beef Rolls 牛肉捲餅. A lot of times you will find this at BBT shops. This Taiwanese burrito makes a great snack! I love the pan fried scallion pancake on the outside, wrapped around tender beef shanks, cucumbers and lots of scallions. I love the sweet hoisin sauce that binds everything together. Of course, this dish has a varying degree of success restaurant to restaurant. Some are too oily, while others are too salty or saucy. So, I decided to make my own version of this infamous beef roll. And honestly, it is so damn easy to make (especially with an InstantPot).

I love a crispy, flaky, green onion pancake with a little chew. It shouldn’t been overly greasy or heavy with shortening. This classic snack can be enjoyed on it’s own or paired with some delicious tender beef shanks. Often I would make beef shanks in my Instantpot ahead of time like I do with braised beef brisket and tendons. It goes perfectly with a bowl of noodles or as a side dish.

Often when I make these beef rolls, I would also make a batch of Spicy Smashed Cucumber Salad 拍黄瓜 and a batch of spicy Sichuan Husband and Wife Lung Slices 夫妻廢片. The name itself is rather silly and there’s probably a wive’s tale somewhere how the name originated. It is simply just slices of beef brisket and tripe marinated in a spicy Sichuan peppercorn, sesame soy sauce! No husband died or wife died…

 

Making scallion pancakes 蔥油餅 at home is fairly easy and it takes only 5 ingredients: All purpose flour, hot water, salt, sesame oil and green onions. Sometimes I also add in some cilantro just because I LOVE cilantro. I can never get enough!

NOURISHING SNOW PEAR LONGAN CHINESE SOUP REICPE 雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯

NOURISHING SNOW PEAR LONGAN CHINESE SOUP REICPE 雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯

As the weather gets colder and Autumn-Winter approaches it is very important to nourish ourselves from within. This snow pear longan sweet soup (雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯) is suitable for all ages. It helps to nourish the lungs and reduces coughing, reduces fire, removes dampness and heals the spleen and kidney. Longan calms and soothe the nerves…

This soup is neutral and suitable for most people. While it carries a sweet taste that can pass for a dessert if you add more dates.

The soup colour has a light brown colour.

To speed up the cooking process I like using the InstantPot Duo . Instead of a 6 hours boil, cooking time can be reduced to 1.5 hours.

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant 濠江尚品海鮮酒家 is a Chinese restaurant located in Coquitlam (next to Silvercity Cineplex Cinemas) on 100 Schoolhouse Street. This is another humble restaurant with minimal decor. This restaurant offers dim sum lunch service as well as seafood dinner (set menus and combos available). We’ve been here several times and consistency is an issue. Food quality is not always up to par.

 

Fish slice congee: watery and not a lot of ingredients. The congee base is not pillowy like Neptune Wonton and does not have the fresh fish taste like Eastern Pearl in Port Coquitlam.

 

Dim Sum option here at Grand River is not bad however. There are a lot of choices – some other Chinese restaurants in Tri-Cities does not have.

 

Deep Fried Bean Curd Shrimp Roll

 

Rice Roll with Chinese Donut and Shrimp Paste.

 

Three Mushroom Rice Rolls

 

Shrimp Dumplings

 

Curry Baby Octopus

 

Steamed Bean Curd Roll

 

Pineapple Bun BBQ Pork Bun

 

Deep Fried Sesame Balls: This is one of my favorite desserts here.

 

Not to confuse you, not Coquitlam has a Chinese restaurants all with the name “Grand”.

Neptune Chinese Kitchen Coquitlam | 鳳鳴粥麵 Hard Rock Casino

Neptune Chinese Kitchen Coquitlam | 鳳鳴粥麵 Hard Rock Casino

Neptune Chinese Kitchen 鳳鳴粥麵 has been opened a little under a year now at the Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam on United Boulevard. The restaurant is spacious, baby friendly, bright but a little out of the way from city center. It is usually pretty quiet (something I quite enjoy).  The staff are friendly and welcoming. It has become one of our go to restaurants for a quick bite.

Similar to the other Neptune locations like Mc Arthur Glen outlets, Neptune Chinese Kitchen menu focuses on wonton noodle soup, congee and signature Chinese dishes.

 

Congee: My favorite is Neptune’s congee base. It is pillowy and has a nice consistency unlike here. I usually option for the fish slices or the pig liver congee.

Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings: A small order of wings gets you about 6-7 pieces. Deep fried and covered with garlic and jalapeno bits.

 

Yin Yang Fried Rice: Tomato and Cream sauce based fried rice. It has a good balance of sweet and sour.

 

Braised Fish and Tofu Hot Pot: Sometimes when we don’t feel like having noodle soup, we option of their entree signature dishes. I love how heated their wok is. It makes a difference in the execution of each dish.

 

Deep Fried Bean Curd with Vegetables: When Deer Garden closed down, I was so upset that I couldn’t enjoy one of my favorite dishes in Coquitlam anymore. Luckily, Neptune makes a pretty kick ass version itself. It is light and non-greasy.

 

The prices at Neptune are a little expensive. Dinner for two could set you back $50 if you want to order noodle soups along with a few snack side dishes. I hope this place gets a little busier and will last. I would hate to see it close down due to a lack of traffic. Coquitlam has been dying for a wonton noodle restaurant!
