What is Anbe?

It began to eat lamb as Genghis Khan from around 1930 in Tono. Now, Genghis Khan has become a staple in Tono’s food culture.

Anbe is the original store of Tono Genghis Khan with a history of over 50 years.

The first owner of Anbe learned the deliciousness of Genghis Khan in Manchuria during military service. After that, he opened Anbe in Tono. At first, it seems that his family only ate Genghis Khan.

How to bake Genghis Khan.

  1. First, add the oil to the pot and let it soften. Leave the fat as it is on the top of the pan.
  2. Then, place the vegetables on the edge of the pot and the lamb meat in the middle. Wait until the color of the lamb edge changes, because If you turn it upside down immediately, the meat will stick to the pot.
  3. Turn over when the color of the lamb edge changes. After turning over, If the meat has a brown color, you can enjoy it. If you grill too much, the meat will be hard

When it’s baked, add homemade sauce and eat! The taste of meat spreads in my mouth. The meat is tender, juicy and delicious! The vegetables are fresh and delicious.

It was so delicious that I ate up in no time. I was satisfied with the original taste of Tono Genghis Khan.

As an aside, if you have a barbecue in Tono, there is a dedicated Genghis Khan bucket. Bake the Genghis Khan by putting the Genghis Khan pan on the bucket with the intake port. The second owner of Anbe invented this bucket.
