  1. 1. Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. 2. Slice the Butterball® Ready-to-cook Turkey Breast into 1-inch cutlets and place in the marinade, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. 3. The next day remove the turkey from marinade.
  4. 4. Sear the turkey cutlets in a sauté pan with some oil over high heat until just browned, but not cooked all the way through.
  5. 5. Remove turkey cutlets from the pan, allow to rest and let cool.
  6. 6. Cut the cooled turkey slices into a small dice. Reserve the diced turkey to fill into the barbagiuan dough.
  7. 7. To assemble the barbagiuan, cut the dough into 3 oz. pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Roll out each ball of dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/16-inch thickness. Each piece of dough should look like a crepe.
  8. 8. Place about 2 tablespoons of turkey bulgogi in the center of each dough circle. Brush egg wash on the edges of each round.
  9. 9. Fold over the dough and seal the edges, taking care to remove any air bubbles.
  10. 10. Using a 3-inch fluted ring cutter, cut the excess dough from the edges and make sure all of the barbaguians are properly sealed. Cover and set aside.
  11. 11. Heat the peanut oil in a fryer or deep pot until it reaches 350 degrees F. Fry the barbaguians until they are golden brown, 5 minutes total, making sure to flip them over to fry on each side.
  12. 12. Serve four of the barbagiuan to a plate with a garnish of cilantro, and a soy dipping sauce.
