Asadito In Chile

Ernesto, a reader here from Chile, has kindly passed along a few photos to share from a couple little asados he threw down last December.

Chile asado

That juicy chunk of meat is from a cut called lomo vetado and, according to Ernesto, is one of the top preferred cuts in Chile. In Argentina it is known as ojo de bife from the bife ancho cut.

Going clockwise from the meat, those tasty sides are: a thick, creamy sauce with mushrooms, onion and garlic; beetroot and soft cheese salad; oven-baked diced potatoes with herbs

You just want to grab that fork & knife and dig right in, no?

Summertime is here so that means cordero(lamb) time! This tasty looking half section, rubbed only with salt, is slowly roasting over parra (grapevine). Cooked for 2 hours on each side.

Also, take a look at that grill! Simple, yet highly effective. I love how high that rack can be cranked too.

  1. What kind of cheese do you think is in that salad? I love beets and would like to add a new recipe.

  2. I wondered the same thing and emailed him. Cooled boiled beets and blue cheese dressed with a little bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
