I am in Argentina, known as the “Meat Country”. And guess what I had for lunch yesterday? ASADO! Strangely enough, the asado has no steaks (some say for cultural reasons, others say that the steaks are all sold overseas), but has some other strange parts of the cow (chinchulines – small intestine; mollejas – sweetbreads) that are all eaten after a long stay above just a small layer of coals.
I personally like a steak better than assorted cow parts, but from time to time an asado is something very special.
Wet your mouths.
