Sudan Miris Lamb Fat Stew


Lamb and sheep fats are used in a number of Sudan favorite recipes. Are you about that Sudan sheep fat food life? 



 Around 35% of Sudan's 37 million residents have access to electricity; therefore cooking meals on an open fire is a necessity for most households.  

The National dish of Sudan arguably is a Miris, a simple meal made of cassavas, onions, okra and lamb fat for seasoning and flavor usually cooked the traditional way, over an open fire.

Lamb and sheep fats are used in a number of North African, Middle Eastern, and Lebanese dishes but if lamb fat is too adventurous then use pork fatback or beef fat. If you really, really want to stay on the mild side of culinary life then use olive oil instead of lamb fat.
