It’s a simple yet incredibly delicious dish that evokes memories of cherished moments in Hawaii with family. The key ingredients include thinly sliced beef with some fat, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, black pepper, hoisin sauce, rice or white vinegar, and optional sesame oil and pineapple juice.
