Meat Jun

Hawaii-Style Meat Jun is a popular local dish with Korean origins. Thinly slice beef is marinated, then dipped in flour and egg, and fried. Soooo delicious! There's also an optional dipping sauce. Eat with hot rice (bonus points for sides of kimchi and mac salad) ^_^

Batter the meat. Pour the flour onto a plate. Beat the eggs and place in a large bowl. Working with one slice at a time, dip the meat slice into the flour first (shake off any excess flour). Then dip into the egg.
Panfry the meat. Make sure there's about 1/2-inch of oil in your pan. Over medium-high heat, fry each side for 1-2 minutes. Once finished, remove to a plate lined with paper towels (to soak up oil).
Time to eat! Serve the meat jun with hot rice and dipping sauce on the side. You can eat with fork and knife and slice each piece like a steak. Or use scissors to cut the meat jun into strips and then eat with chopsticks (this is how most places in Hawaii serve it).
