“I had the opportunity to go to Mongolia with my family in 2019. We have friends in Mongolia we visited and we went out on the Steppe and visited people in their Gers literally in the middle of nowhere. Average family has about 300 animals the manage. Some much more. The preferred meat is sheep for breakfast lunch and dinner with goat and sheep cheese and yogurt and salty milky tea. No vegetables minimal to no spices salt meat is usually boiled. Also had sheep knee soup once.Also one time they prepared sheep the same way Genghis Khan and his army did they take the sheep and remove the organs and place hot stones from the fire in the cavity and sew it up and let it cook from the inside out. Then serve in bowls that you eat out of while sitting on your horse. They are a very strong resilient people who are very proud of their heritage. They are looking forward to their future since they are no longer under the Control of Russia. However the younger generation is moving away from the nomadic life and to the big city. Using motorcycles to herd the animals instead of horses. It was a great experience we plan on going back in the future next time in July when they have Naadam festival. Also try Airag fermented horse milk they love it.
Also look up The Hu band fusion of traditional Mongolian music ie horse fiddle and throat singing with rock.”
