Popular Japanese Lamb Dish

Jingisukan is a Japanese grilled lamb dish cooked on a hot metal skillet or grill, similar to yakiniku. Jingisukan is especially popular in Hokkaido, where two of the original five sheep farms in Japan were established. While Jingisukan gets it's name from Ghengis Khan, the founder of the Mongolian Empire had almost nothing to do with creating the meal. The Japanese believed lamb was a popular dish in Mongolia, and the shape of the grill is to be modeled after the helmets Mongolian soldiers wear (and allegedly also cook food on). While there is some dispute as to where the dish originates from, Hokkaido is the ideal Japan tour spot for Jingisukan barbecue.
