After all those years of thinking of Russia as one large unified country, it’s fascinating to discover the ethnic differences in cuisine from the diverse regions that made up the former U.S.S.R. Here’s a vibrant-flavored lamb marinade from the province of Uzbekistan. Lots of garlic, combined with pungent spices and a little tomato, infuses the meat with intense flavor.
