The Argentina Asado dates back to the mid-nineteenth century. When millions of Spanish cattle roamed wild throughout the Reo de la Pampa. The Gaucho's developed a fondness for beef combined with Iamb and goat. The meats were cooked for hours over the hot coals from the wood of the Quebracho Tree. These early social gathering of family and friends has survived for generations. Today, Argentines take this "cooking with fire" to the mountains, the many city parks, or in the shelter of their backyards. You can hear the laughter as they share their beloved Asado with family and friends. Also, it's a pretty solid bet they will be serving their national beverage, "The Malbec."
