While stationed in Hawaii, this was always something we'd order at the local restaurants.
- 1 lb beef, thinly sliced
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons oil, for frying*
- 4 tablespoons Kikkoman soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon green onion, minced fine
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon accent flavor enhancer (optional)
- In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the marinade. Add the thinly sliced meat and marinate for at least 1 hour.
- Remove meat from marinade and dredge meat slices in flour, then in eggs and then fry in hot oil until browned on both sides.
- You may need to add more oil as you need. Drain juhn on paper towel, slice into serving pieces and serve.
- This is can also be made with fleshy, white fish pieces.
- *NOTE: More oil may be needed for frying.
Yum! I'm 1/2 Korean and I've only had Meat Juhn with white fish made by my wonderful grandmother. I was so excited to make this since my husband (who's Chamorro!) said he wanted to go get some sometime. I'm so happy I found your recipe. It's absolutely delicious! I used 1 tsp of sugar instead of 1/2 tsp though. Didn't make it sweet at all. Just right! I can't wait to try your other recipes!
For sure this will be repeated at our house. Made a third of the recipe and it was plenty for three people. Thank you for sharing.
