"Typically, meat jun is really thinly sliced, nearly transparent beef, marinated in a savory-sweet soy-sauce-based liquid, then patted dry before the flour and egg and frying steps. The cooked pieces are then cut into strips before serving. One local online food magazine polled its readers and came up with a list of favorite places for meat jun. You might find the photos interesting (they just made me very hungry). https://www.frolichawaii.com/stories/you-voted-heres-your-top-5-meat-jun"

"Aloha Maangchi! This dish is similar to what we in Hawai‘i call "meat jun." So many Hawai‘i people travel and when they find a Korean restaurant outside the islands, they'll ask for "meat jun" and they get funny looks, like, there's no such thing. ^.^ We've been led to believe that while "fish jun" is truly Korean, "meat jun" is an only-in-Hawai‘i thing. HOWEVER, maybe we just call it by the wrong name -- we should refer to it as soegogi-jeon. LOVE LOVE LOVE your work and your recipes, please keep up the great work and come visit Hawai‘i when all this pandemic madness is over."
