Rustic Mongolian Lamb Soup with Dumplings

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: The Cave of the Yellow Dog
Cuisine: Mongolian

This may be my very favorite soup in all the world. Every time I make it, I marvel at how simple yet satisfying it is. The whole process, including the handmade dumplings takes less than an hour, and yields a hearty kettle full of tender lamb and pillowy dumplings in a subtly spicy broth. A rustic pot of home-made goodness that warms you from the inside out.
