Argentine Father’s Day recipes are not difficult to make. They rely simply on delicious cuts of meat and superb sauces. The meat is grilled low and slow to give the flavors a chance to shine. And all you really need is a grill to make it happen and a little time.

The recipes are simple, flavorful, and utterly delicious.

My husband lived in Argentina and to this day, the memories of that time are fresh and vibrant. He can describe the asados he attended, the food he ate in vivid color, and the generosity and hospitality of the people.

It was an idyllic time I want to recreate for him (Pacific Northwest style) for Father’s Day. Because after all, is there anything more Father’s Day than grilling?! Not in my family!

Parilla: Grilling Tradition of South America

In Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay, grilling steaks is less about searing and cooking at high heat, it’s more about low, slow cooking.

In South America, cooks prefer to sizzle their cuts of meat, season with salt alone, and serve with herbaceous chimichurri.

Parilla, pronounced (pa-REE-jah) is the grill, which is often a metal grate placed over a fire. Many regional steakhouses prepare meat this way too.

What is an Asado

In Argentina, asados, an outdoor barbecue that can take all day, is part of their culinary culture. And it is what reminds my husband of his love for the country.

When asked about an Argentine Asado, the Buenos Aires Tourism Association writes:

With an Argentine asado, you can’t get away with a few hamburgers and hot dogs like you might elsewhere. Sure, there are sausages to start with, but they’re always followed by real cuts of meat like tira de asado, colita de cuadril, entraña and vacio. Of course, if there’s anyone in the group who doesn’t eat meat, then there’ll also be a huge colourful salad and plenty of veg on the grill too.

While a traditional Asado would involve slowly grilling cuts of meat over several hours, we’re simplifying tradition with easy recipes to make for Father’s Day.
