Kazan kebab is a traditional Central Asian dish, particularly from Uzbekistan, characterized by its hearty and flavorful combination of meat (usually lamb, but also beef, pork, chicken, or horse meat) and potatoes.
The meat, often cooked on the bone, is stewed in the kazan (a bowl-shaped frying pan) with fried, crispy potatoes, seasoned with a blend of spices.
The slow cooking and preparation method and the time spent stewing are key to achieving the delicate texture and expressive taste of the dish.
In Uzbek culture, kazan kebab is often seen as a “male” dish, likely due to its hearty nature and the sense of fullness it provides.
It is a common feature in the menus of choyhonas (tea houses) and is a dish that every Uzbek is expected to be able to cook.
It also holds cultural significance in Uzbekistan, often prepared for festive occasions and cooked outdoors.
