Asado

In Argentina, the standard word for barbeque is Asado and it isn’t just a method of cooking meat - it is an art form in its own right. An Asado is also a social event where everyone can gather around the open fire.

A variety of different meats are cooked on the Parrilla (grill). Ribs, flank steak, Patagonian lamb and chorizo are just a few of the most common offerings at an Asado. There are no heavy marinades or sauces; salt is usually the only flavouring. The taste comes purely from the method. The coals and wood create a smoked effect as the meat cooks slowly. To avoid a meat overload, the tender cuts are often accompanied by mixed salad, bread and mixed vegetables. To wash all the food down, local wine is recommended. The succulent beef is perfectly complimented by a tall glass of Malbec.

For an authentic taste of Asado, Steaks by Luis in Buenos Aires is one of the best options. Get the full Argentinian eating experience with a hefty 5 course meal.
