People often ask what Mongolians eat. There are a lot of places you can find information about traditional meals and national foods (like what you’d prepare if you have guests coming over or are celebrating holiday) but what about the every day normal foods?
I recently spent a week outside the capital city with a group of people and did my best to document what we ate. Here’s what my week looked like…at least the food part of it:
Every meal other than breakfast has meat–this time it was beef but there’s usually a lot of lamb–with potatoes, carrots, and some other element like rice or noodles. Our meals were made in a giant stir fry bowl over a wood burning stove and they were ALWAYS delicious. Mongolians don’t often include much seasoning but, because of the free range cows’ diet, their meat is full of flavor and they know how to bring the best out of each ingredient.
