A truly easy but scrumptious dutch meal. What to make for dinner when you don't have much in the fridge/cupboards and much time...or just wanna try something different and delicious, make Gevulde Pannekoek, translation: Meat-Filled Pancake.
For the pancakes: 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 cups milk, 2 eggs, salt, butter or margarine for baking.
For the filling: 4 tbsp. butter or margarine, 1/3 cup flour, 2 cups stock or bouillon, salt, pepper, nutmeg, lemon juice to taste, 2 cups of cooked meat or minced ( I used ground pork), 1/2 cup canned mushrooms (I used 2 sliced onions instead)
Make a thick brown sauce of butter, flour, and stock: add seasoning, keep stirring and mix with meat and mushrooms. Keep hot but take care that it does not boil, or meat will get tough. Filling can be made in advance. Make smooth batter of the pancake ingredients. Heat butter in a 10 inch skillet. Use half of the batter; brown pancake slowly on one side until done. Slide onto platter and keep hot. Make second pancake in same way. Spread meat mixture on light side of first pancake and turn second pancake, brown side up, on top of first. Cut into wedges and serve at once with a green salad. Serve as dinner entree of for lunch.
Honestly at first when I saw this recipe in a little book called The Netherlands Cookbook I was thinking yuck, but for some reason I was intrigued and gave it a shot. Apparently the Dutch love'em some pancakes.
