【Scallion meat flatbread-Shaobing】
Shaobing (shāo bǐng), is a type of baked, layered flatbread in Chinese cuisine. Shaobing can be made with or without stuffing, and with or without sesame on top. Shaobing contains a variety of stuffings that can be grouped into two main flavors: savory or sweet. I made these with meat filling, very delicious.
