The Chinese word 羊肉 means “mutton” or “sheep meat”. It is a commonly used ingredient in Chinese cuisine, particularly in Northern China where lamb dishes are popular. 羊肉 can be cooked in a variety of ways, such as stir-frying, braising, or grilling. It is often used in hot pot dishes, where thinly sliced lamb is cooked in a communal pot of boiling broth. In addition to its culinary uses, 羊肉 is also used in traditional Chinese medicine for its supposed warming properties.
