Thanks, Addie. I'll hang on to it as long as I can.

I think you're right! I only have the hoof part and it sucks!

I'm actually quite good at putting my foot in my mouth.

You too huh? It explains why I have such a big mouth. Every time I try to shut it, it just falls open again and I find myself in more trouble.

I here that Uruguayan meat is as good as Argentinian, the only thing they can only import meat, not the bones.

When I was in Chile I could get both (plus Chiliean) I preferred the Argentinian. But I also never had the high end Uruguayan. I did like the beef from Chile and I have found a source for it.

According to Wiki, Argentina instituted a ban on exporting beef to other countries to keep local prices low during their currency crisis.


2006 Argentine restriction of beef exports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There is also the possibility that Argentine beef does not meet USDA standards, which may be due to a lack of inspection or other requirements. I know that some hams, particularly Proscuitto, but also Serrano, was not imported for the same reasons. Fiorucci set up a plant a few miles from my home to produce processed pork products for the US market.

Uruguayan grass fed meat is exelent. Of course all i can compare to is American corn fed, so it may not say a lot.

Well, regardless, beef served at some of the Argentinian restaurants around here are wonderful.
We frequently buy beef and chorizos from a local Argentinian meat market but never gave thought to where the meat actually came from.
