  • 250g Co-op plain flour
  • 250g Co-op 12% fat British beef mince
  • ½ tsp Chinese 5 spice powder seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Co-op reduced salt dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced, plus extra slices to serve
  • 100g Co-op British savoy cabbage, finely sliced
  • ½ tbsp Co-op toasted sesame oil
  • Vegetable oil, for frying and greasing

  1. Start by making a dough: mix the flour with 150ml water, then knead for 5 mins, until smooth and elastic
  2. Cover it with a damp tea towel and set aside

For the filling:-

  1. Combine the mince, 5 spice, soy, ginger, garlic and spring onion
  2. Fry the cabbage in the sesame oil over a medium heat for 3-4 mins, until soft. Set aside
  3. Lightly oil your work surface
  4. Divide the dough into 8, then roll out one into a disc roughly 12cm in diameter
  5. Keep the rest of the dough covered. Brush the disc with oil, spread with a heaped tablespoon of the mince filling, leaving a 3cm border, then top with a spoonful of the cabbage
  6. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling and pinch together in the middle to seal
  7. Press lightly with the palm of your hand to flatten a little
  8. Repeat with the remaining dough, then sprinkle the pancakes with the sesame seeds
  9. Heat 3cm oil in a large frying pan
  10. Fry the pancakes in batches for 3 mins each side, or until dark golden
  11. Drain on kitchen paper, then serve with the sauces for dipping, topped with spring onion slices
