riverli thank you for your first hand experience! I think I would love the dish with mutton. I bet a lot of people in the USA would not be daring enough to try that though which is probably why they use beef instead. Mutton in this dish would be delicious though.

The Xinjiang Province was a major part of the "Silk Road", which was one of the biggest trade routes in ancient times through Asia, Europe, and Africa. Because of that, many dishes from the Xinjiang Province contain flavors and ingredients not thought of by most in the Western world as being traditional Chinese cuisine.

yes ,ironchef is right.many dishes from xinjiang province are not similar with the traditional chinese cuisine.In xinjiang province many popular dishes are made by mutton and beef,but the most is mutton.
xinjiang is the biggest province in china.it is about 1,600,000 square kilometer ,but few people live there ,about 20 million.as you know ,there are about 1300 million people live in china.
l love some dishes's flavors of xinjiang .i love a kind of mix round noodle very much. it can be easy cooked.it taste good and cooking technique is simple. i will test more times then
report the recipe for friends

I think this must have been my first experience with Xinjiang Province cuisine. I look forward to trying more. The flavors were excellent.

WHen I am in the DC area I like to go to an out of the way place called Joe's noodle house. really. menu on the wall in Chinese. all asian families. I tell the hostess who is happy to interpret, two dishes one meat one fish, one hot, lots of greens, brown rice please. I've never gotten the same thing twice, she remembers even if a year has passed. Generally it's the specials..what has come in fresh. Amazing cuisine. The most amazing dark green leafy veggies...crisp tender, sweet, take to HOT spice well, ... want some right now...!! btw, Alton Brown did dark leafy greens last night...wonderful show.
