Traditional Japanese food Vol.6 – Hokkaido Cuisine: Genghis Khan

Genghis Khan
The Genghis Khan-Nabe is a special helmet-shaped pan made from cast iron.
It is a dish in which thinly sliced mutton and vegetables like bean sprouts, cabbage and pumpkin are basted and roasted.
The main ingredient of Genghis Khan-Nabe is barbecued mutton.
Don’t worry, you’ll not be eating the “remains” of the former ruler of Mongolia!
Perhaps its name stems from being a favorite of Genghis Khan, founder of the Mongol Empire. Or perhaps, it stems from Mongolian soldiers roasting mutton in their warrior helmets.
Whichever the case, this dish is renowned for its hearty taste and unique rustic flavor.
Many restaurants around Hokkaido specialize in Genghis Khan-Nabe and it is very popular at large beer parlors such as the Sapporo Bier Garten and Kirin Beer Garden, which are always crowded with tourists.

    It is lovely price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all
