This dish is part of the jeon family, or the fried family. I take two different kinds of pepper and stuff and fry them.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 10 long green pepper (try to get thicker ones, not thin)
  • 5-6 tbsp flour
  • 13 oz beef -- sirloin or other cut with less fat
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 stalks of green onion, diced
  • 1 tsp sesame seed powder (kaesogum 깨소금)
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Recipe Steps:

  • Slice the green peppers open on one side and remove the seeds. Dust the inside with flour. Dust with flour as well. Set aside.
  • Slice beef thinly and into small pieces, pounding on the beef with the knife on the cutting board to tenderize it a bit. Season with garlic, green onion, sesame seed powder, black pepper and soy sauce. Mix thoroughly.
  • Stuff the mixture into the long green peppers, filling the long peppers. Set aside.
  • Beat the eggs with a whisk, adding a pinch of salt and pepper. Put into a rectangular dish for dipping the peppers into.
  • Coat the stuffed sides of long pepper and bell pepper with flour then egg.
  • Heat a frying pan with vegetable oil until warm, adding the stuffed peppers. Fry one side of long green pepper until it gets lightly brown, about 3-4 minutes.
