Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

Around the world there’re different types of cuisines, but a really small population in the world knows about Mongolian cuisine. Mostly known for being one of the biggest and powerful empires of the world, the Mongols created different dishes with exotic ingredients, since they were nomads.

The Guriltai Shul – The Mongolian soupy noodles are a traditional Mongol dish that is composed of these exotic ingredients for those times: salt, pepper, pork muttons, vegetables, yaks milk and the most important ingredient NOODLES!

For that kind of people that are moving from place to place over and over again, this kind of dish was extremely delicious and healthy.



  • Mutton: the meatfrom an adult sheep eaten as food.
  • Noodles: a strip, ring, or tube of pasta or a similar dough, typically made with egg and usually eaten with a sauce or in a soup.
  • Cuisine: A style or quality of cooking; cookery.
  • Yak: It’s a big animal with horns and hooves that’s native to Central Asia.

  1. Very interesting read. I was not familiar with this dish. Is there more flexibility in the ingredients used in the soup today…now that more ingredients and resources are available? If so, what are the most popular variations? Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you for your comment! Nowadays this dish can be cooked with vegetables such as: potatoes, carrots, turnips and green onions. Instead of using yak meat you can use beef or mutton, but don’t forget to include the fat. You can follow the video with all these ingredients instead and add the noodles. It’s similar to the Mexican beef broth.
