Stir-fried lamb

Stir-fried lamb is a traditional snack in Ningxia. Pingluo’s production is unique and well-known, so it is also called Pinluo lamb.

The method is very particular, especially when the heat is high. Start stir-frying over high heat until the color turns yellow. Add celery, vermicelli and other ingredients, increase the heat to medium and continue stir-frying until the lamb meat is tender. The color is bright red, the meat is soft and tender, and the taste is mellow.


We use lambs that are less than one year old, especially lambs that have never eaten grass. The meat is fat but not greasy, and it is refreshing and tender.
