Vietnamese Sizzling Crepe (Bánh Xèo)

This delicious southern-style Sizzling Crepe (Bánh Xèo) is mainly made from rice flour, coconut milk, beer, turmeric and chopped green onion; stuffed with cooked pork, shrimps, and bean sprouts. Traditionally, we do not use beer in the batter, but I have found that beer will make the crepe crisper and also give it a very good taste. You can make this pancake for your loved ones in weekends or family reunion party.

You can use either a non-stick pan or a cast iron skillet for this recipe.

These crepes are usually served with Vietnamese Dipping Sauce or soy sauce. You can check out the recipe to make this sauce, http://www.npfamilyrecipes.com/recipe/vietnamese-dipping-sauce-nuoc-mam-pha/
