Beef is much more than just a source of food in Argentina; it is a cause of national pride and a central social pillar with families and friends gathering around an open fire every Sunday for the traditional BBQ or asado. In fact, when delivering the Sunday weather reports, there is often advice as to whether the asado can be held outside or not. This weekly tradition has seen the demand for high quality beef become an expectation and the norm as opposed to a luxury. Baring this in mind, it is not surprising that Argentinians eat almost twice as much beef per head as they do in the US. They really know what they are doing.

The cows themselves primarily roam and graze on the Pampas plains that surround Buenos Aires with the fabled gauchos (Argentine equivalent to the US cowboys) there to ensure they are reared and raised in such a way as to ensure their quality is constantly high and meets the exacting standards of the demanding public. The cows are free to wander vast distances and have an open, stress free lifestyle as they graze freely, feeding on the natural grass that grows on the pampas plains.

But what impact does this have and what does this do to the beef? The natural and relaxed lifestyle of the cows helps to ensure a lean, tender quality and helps to avoid the toughness that some beef can be afflicted by; this is a distinct feature of the marvellous Argentine beef. The reason for this is that stress and the associated adrenaline causes the muscle to tense up as it prepares for action; avoiding this as much as possible results in tender beef- so the life style of the Argentine cows really enhances their quality. 

The grass fed diet of the cows also results in a healthier meat that is rich in omega 3 and 6 and makes the beef have a wonderful tenderness with a marvellous natural finish. There is less fat covering when compared to grain-fed beef so care must be taken when cooking the meat to maintain the wonderful tenderness; otherwise it could result in a chewy steak, but treat it with care and you will not be disappointed.

This results in a variety of amazing cuts such as the ribeye (ojo de bife), fillet (bife de lomo), and sirloin (bife de chorizo) along with the rump hearts (cuadril) to name a few. These cuts make for exceptional steaks, roasts or grills and can provide you with your own asado and a marvellous chance to sample this incredibly tasty and scrumptious part of Argentine life and culture.
