Kuurdak (Kyrgyz: куурдак, Kazakh: куырдак, Turkmen: gowurdak, Uzbek: qovurdoq), transliterated with various spellings, is a traditional meat dish made in Central Asia, especially among the Kyrgyz. The name comes from a nominalisation of the word "roast", "fried", referring to how the food is made. It is described as "stewed brown meat".[1]

Kuurdak is one of the main and oldest dishes in Kyrgyz cuisine. Kuurdak is usually made from mutton, it can be made using beef or any other kind of meat except pork.
