One of the most traditional Argentine barbecues is asado de tira, a cut of beef ribs, which is served with a tomato salsa. To approximate the tender Argentine cut, use skirt steak. If you cook the meat in a grill pan, lightly oil the pan first. Affordable Meat Recipes

  • Season the skirt steak with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat for about 3 minutes per side, or until lightly charred and medium rare. Transfer the steak to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak on the diagonal and pass the salsa separately.

Suggested Pairing

A Cabernet Sauvignon will have tannins that are beefy, just like a good Argentine asado.
