Normally when I see a BBQ full of meat, I think that I'm in for a boring dinner of overcooked steak and a decent chorizo. Typically, I bring vegetables or demand a chicken to be grilled as well. BUT my life changed the other week when I ate the RIGHT meat and now I have a new found respect for Argentine beef. Key to an asado's success (at least for me) is a good asador, entraña, a nice rib (costilla), and chorizo. Sencillo.
This was a mega asado for 20 people with costilla de something, entrana, chorizo, morcilla, and other ridiculously good cuts of meat. I had to add a little yankee flair with a potato and pesto salad. All 10 puntos.
