Ddukgalbi or Korean style beef patties, a popular dish in Hawaii brought over by Korean immigrants. Korean food has always been a part of Hawaii cuisine and Ddukgalbi is one of my favorites. You can make this "jun" style by dipping in egg and flour and frying patties in a frying pan.

- ½ small Korean pear, grated
- 1 ½ tsp. sesame oil
- 1 tsp. salt

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients (except oil) well; marinate 30 minutes. Shape mixture into desired sized patties. In a skillet over medium high heat; warm oil. Brown patties well. Meat Jun Version: ½ cup flour, 2 large eggs. Dredge patties in flour and then dip into the beaten egg. Fry well on both sides until cooked through. Serve with rice and kim chee.
