    Argentinean Chimichurri sauce

    by nattybabe Written Sep 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We fell in love with Chimichurri as soon as we had it with our steaks on our first time through Buenos Aires. I didn't think to buy any there and have regretted it ever since. I have found some in my local department store, but see below for the receipe if you want to have a go at making it yourself.

    Chimichurri is the very best barbeque marinade there is. The Argentineans know all there is to know about steak, and this is the tastiest (and easiest) way to marinade meat. It can be used as a marinade or just a dipping sauce, and used with steak, chicken or pork. A good thing to remember is the longer you marinade the meat for, the better it will taste.

    1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
    6 cloves garlic
    3/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    1 teaspoon chopped oregano
    1 red onion, diced
    Juice of 1 lemon
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes - or more if you like it spicy!

    Put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz it - easy as that! Marinate the meat overnight in the fridge, then cook on a hot barbeque or grill pan. Yum yum!

    Asados part 2

    another asado

    Here is another type of Asado. Called "Carne con Cuero", the whole cow is split in half and layed out on sort of a grill, and secured with wires. Then it's leaned against the fire and, again, cooked very slowly.

    This photo was taken in Pinamar in January of 2003, and the "chef' here started preparing the cow at about 11 in the morning. It was about 10pm at the time of this photo, and the meat was just about done. Incredibly tasty!!

    Sorry for the blurry photo, but there was plenty of smoke and ashes flying around!

    You must eat a flan

    by wadekorzan Written Jan 16, 2004

    Flan

    Flan is practically the national dessert, and probably you are already familiar with this dessert made of eggs and milk. You will find it on the dessert menu of almost every restaurant, and in many cases it is "flan casera", meaning home made flan. Many people also make it at home. Of all the desserts in Argentina, I think this perhaps is the most typical and I definitely wouldn't leave the country without having eaten it at least once. It is often servd with Argentina's other specialty, dulce de leche, which is like caramel.

    Pizza, ice cream, and avocados

    Everything for delivery!

    What do these three things have in common? They can all be delivered to your home! It is amazing that in Buenos Aires you can just about have anything delivered that you want. The concept is not new, by any means. However, I was just shocked when my friend Leo called the vegetable store to have 2 ripe avocados delivered to our doorstep! It's just an interesting custom, as well as a dangerous one. It is simply too easy to deliver delcious ice cream at 3 in the morning. To heck with the diet, huh?

    We also usually have everything from the supermarket delivered. It is an amazing system. We go to the supermarket, pay for everything, and within 2-3 hours it is delivered to your home nywhere in the city! In fact, just some days ago we were at the supermarket and were going to carry everything ourselves but it turned out to be a bit too much--so 1 of the guys from the supermarket walked home with us with the shopping cart and all--right to our kitchen on the 15th floor! Talk about service!!!

    Empanadas

    While in BA, you should definitely try an empanada, the small little pastry crust filled with either meat or vegetables or cheese or a combination of ingredients. Sometimes the pastry is fried and sometimes it's cooked in an oven.

    You'll see places all over town that offer empanadas, but I'd recommend a place called La Querencia at the corner of Junin and Juncal in Barrio Norte (they have other locations too). Try the beef empanadas as the ham and cheese. Yum.
