- 5 kg lamb or goat meat (ideally ribs) – cut into small pieces
- 7 potatoes peeled and chopped into large chunks
- 4 carrots cut into large chunks peeled and chopped
- 2 onions, peeled and sliced
- 1 head garlic – peel each clove and chop each clove in half
- 1 Tbsp. freshly-ground caraway
- 4 tsp. Kosher salt
- 2 1/2 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
- water – about 250ml
- Pepper-flavored vodka – about 50ml (TFD change, original recipe used unflavored)
- 10–15 round and smooth fist-sized stones
- Prepare the stones by cleaning them thoroughly and heating them over red-hot coals for around 1 hour.
- While doing this, prepare the ingredients as set out above.
- Put the water and vodka in a large pot with pepper and 2 tsp. salt and bring to a boil.
- Once the stones are heated, start adding the meat and vegetables in batches into the large pot and with each batch CAREFULLY add a stone, so that they are eventually all distributed evenly between the meat and vegetables.
- Add 2 more tsp. of salt plus the pepper and caraway.
- Close the lid and cook over medium-high heat for around 1 ½ – 2 hours.
- Check the pot intermittently to ensure the meat is not burning and add water if necessary.
- The juice from the meat will create a delicious broth which is also served alongside the meat and vegetables in a separate bowl passed round.
- Khorkhog is usually eaten without cutlery, just with the fingers.
