Argentinian Asado

How to make Argentinian Asado

Hey everyone, want to learn How to make Argentinian Asado? Then you came to the right place!

This time, I traveled to Buenos Aires, where I met Sol and Balta. Once I told them about the Nomad Cook project, they were also excited to collaborate documenting how to make a real Argentinian asado. Even though Uruguay, Paraguay and even Brazil also have good asados, the Argentinian asado is the most famous one. The grilling here is not only about the famous Argentinian meat, but also about meeting friends and spending time together. It’s a ritual and a fascinating tradition. Typically starts at around 2 pm and lasts till late at night.

The Asado Ritual

We started the day before; we went to buy meat to assure we could have good quality cuts. Then the whole next day is all about grilling and chilling because the real Argentinian asado takes time. We prepared the fire carefully and took the meat out of the fridge with anticipation. This process takes time, rushing is not an option, but the wait is worth it. Slow cooking brings out the full flavor of the meat.

Meanwhile, you can spend a great time with your friends or family, having a glass or two of Fernet with coke (another Argentinian tradition). You can see in the video how to make Argentinian asado as I learned it from Balta, our asado master. A great dessert always follows a great asado, traditionally including dulce de leche. Needless to say that the food turned out delicious. The only thing I missed that day was a relaxing mate.

Don’t miss out on the details. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel. Thanks to Nikki Dix, for providing the music for this video, if you haven’t heard about them, you can check them out on their Spotify or Youtube channels.
