These pancakes are a very simple version of the Beef Stuffed Green Onion Pancake Rolls that you typically find at Chinese restaurants. These are fried until crispy and golden brown, then stuffed with ripe, fresh California avocado, a smear of hoisin, crisp cucumber and a small bundle of cilantro. They are so fresh and flavorful! The contrast of textures from the crispy pancake, creamy avocado and crunchy cucumber will satisfy any appetite and the sweet and salty hoisin ties everything together.
