Thanks for the interesting thread.
In Chile, Argentina and Uruguay, social life centers around EL ASADO, a type of cookout.
This is a colloquial expression, as ASAR the Spanish verb, means to roast ...
At these wineries, The Chileños are "purists" where beef is concerned.
The Chileños prepare as follows:
coarse sea salt
black pepper freshly ground
a 2 Inch thick, 1.5 pound slab of fresh steak
*** Preheat gas oven grill or charcoal grill over moderate heat, both sides for rare: 7 to 8 minutes per side and 10 mins. per side for medium rare.
The Argentinians and Uruguayans on the other hand, marinate their steaks in Chimicharri Marinade for only 2 to 3 hours:
For 2 cups;
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
4 garlic cloves minced
2 cups minced cilantro
1 red jalapeño finely chopped or dry red chili pepper sprinkled
1 cup minced parsley
1/3 cup minced fresh oregano herb
3/4 Cups Evoo
& They sprinkle with Kosher Salt after marinading, for grilling with.
The steaks I have had in these 3 countries were delectable.
Have a nice evening,
