Beef: Argentina has one of the world's highest consumption rates of beef, and is among the world’s top beef exporters. Pretty much, beef is what’s for dinner. While the trend now is towards American-influenced feedlots, grass-fed beef is still abundant in Argentina. Grass-fed beef is higher in anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids, immune enhancing beta-carotene, and heart-healthy vitamin E than it’s conventionally-raised counterpart.
On the Menu: The Argentine version of barbecue is called asado (beef grilled on an open fire pit) and it's standard family fare. Keep an eye out for sweetbreads or mollejas which are actually glands like the heart or pancreas.
