-Put the marinated beef and shiitake mushroom in a pan, then sauté .
-Cut the cucumber into 1.5 inch length. We need thin julienne of the outer green part of the cucumber.Use a knife to peel the outer part of the cucumber for about 1/8 inch thick. This is a tricky part, be careful with your hands !
-Then, make julienne out if it. Saute in a pan with a little bit of salt. Saute mushrooms, carrot and bamboo shoot separately with some salt. Separate eggs, add some salt and make "Ji Dan" (thin crepe).
-Cut into 1.5 inch length ; very thin strips.
-Combine flour, salt, water and make a very light batter.
-In a non-stick pan, put 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and wipe out slightly with a paper towel.
-Pour 1 small ladle of batter, and make a very thin wrapper ; flip once.
-There are special serving plate for this dish in Korea. However, you can arrange them in a big plate and leave the center for wrapper.
-Serve with gyeoja sauce and kanjang sauce.



Tips:

These wrappers are hard to handle.They are easy to break, stick together, and do not taste good if made thick. So be patient and do some practice, and do not overlap until they are completely cooled !

You can substitute with very thinly sliced radish.
Pickle it a day ahead in the same amount of rice vinegar and sugar (add some salt).
Drain it.
You don't have to prepare all eight stuffings.
The simple version is onion, squash, cucumber, and carrot.

This dish can be a vegetarian menu by simply taking out the beef.
