The meat in Shaar stew was somewhat of a mystery but was usually a mixture of old horse and oxen that were long past their prime, vermin trapped on the plains, and rothé, cut into small cubes and strips, rubbed with hot spices, and seared in a pan. A thick, brown broth formed the base and boiled tubers and leafy greens completed the dish. It was served in a bowl made from a round loaf of bread with a hard crust, or ladled into a customer's metal cup or helmet. A serving of Shaar stew at Mother Talasko's cost one to two silver pieces, depending on the cost of the ingredients.
