A Cook Abroad: John Torode’s Argentina

John says his favourite cut of beef is a rump steak cooked quickly on grill. I must try that.

He learns that Chimichurri sauce goes with every meal. It comes from “Give me some curry.” There are lots of variations, here’s one.

In the UK, almost all beef is grass finished. In Argentina, up to 80% goes through a feed lot. A cow on grass takes two years to reach market weight but only 11 months in a feed lot on corn and grain.

The highlight is eating at Francis Mallmann’s Siete Fuegos in Mendoza.
