This uncooked sauce is rich in flavor with hints of garlic and parsley, oregano, and red wine vinegar touching your palette in a flavor explosion. This sauce is traditionally served as a condiment to meat.
As the nation's staple dish, you will find it offered at nearly all restaurants throughout Argentina, as well as made in the homes of the natives. This dish is created by serving mouthwatering slabs of meat over an open fire.
Delightful pastries filled with meats, potatoes, boiled egg pieces, and scallions smothered in a thick red sauce and cheese to create what the country calls the empanada. Although empanadas are easily found at restaurants worldwide, they don't get any more authentic than what you will find in Argentina.
Fettuccine, gnocchi, and cannellini are just a few of Argentina's favored kinds of pasta. You can find many delicate pastas made fresh at restaurants and marketplaces throughout the nation.
This hearty dish is usually served in northern Argentina and over the colder winter months. This thick and flavorful stew is made with meat, potatoes, carrots, peppers, and sweet corn, topped with dried apricots and raisins, and then cooked on the grill in a hollowed-out pumpkin.
This breakfast dish takes its influence from France. It is a flaky pastry baked with lard or butter and then brushed with a sugar glaze. It is a quick yet sufficient way to start the day with coffee.
For those with an intense craving for sweets, the alfajores are sandwich cookies with a thick Dulce de Leche paste made with caramelized milk. The cookie is dipped in chocolate and coconut flakes.
For this plate, a cut of veal or chicken is pounded thin and coated with breadcrumbs. The stakes are then pan-fried, served with mashed potatoes, and topped with egg or cheese sauce.
