The animal's internal organs are removed once it has been killed. Later, these pieces are chopped up and fried in their own grease in a pan. They then add water to the pan and cook the meat for several hours. It's produced using a mixture of diced up flesh, bones, and offal from horses (the most frequent), cows, pigs, or buffalos. Vegetables such as cabbage, lemongrass, chayote, chili leaves, and spicy fruits like "thao qua" and "dia dien," are also included in the dish.

Thang co is a typical Vietnamese hill tribe's meal from Sa Pa in Northwest Vietnam, but it may be found anywhere the Hmong people live because it is their specialty. This stew's name translates to "large pot of water." The dish's distinct flavor derives from a particular sauce made with a variety of spices and a somewhat bitter zing. Thang co is extremely popular in Sapa area on cold and chilly days.
