Bak Kua / Rou Gan / Malaysian Beef Jerky

pkwla | Mar 2, 2009 10:02 PM

I was in Macau a few months ago and had some of the most delicious beef jerky/leather. I've looked for it in LA and I haven't been able to find anything anywhere that even resembles it. I believe it's called Bak Kua (in Malaysian?) and Rou Gan (肉干) in Mandarin. Does anyone know of anywhere in the LA area (Chinatown, SGV, anywhere else) that has this amazing jerky. I had a sweet/bbq flavored variety as well as a more peppery version. It wasn't a dry strip of over smoked/hickory flavored meat like most American jerky, it was sweet and moist while still maintaining its jerky consistency. I am really craving it right now and would really like to find some in LA and not have to fly back to China/Malaysia/Macau.

Thanks for your help!
