Chimichurri to you!
St. Margaret’s barbecue potluck, the Argentinian Asado coming up on Saturday, July 11, may be the first time we will get to dine with our new rector. Mark it on the calendar now and then read a bit more about what’s involved in this special meal.
According to Wikipedia, in addition to all the various meats, “an asado also includes bread, a simple mixed salad … or verdurajo (grilled vegetables), a mixture made of potatoes, corn, onion, and eggplant cooked on the grill and seasoned with olive oil and salt… Dessert is usually fresh fruit.”
The meat for an asado is not marinated, reports Wikipedia. The only preparation is the application of salt. “The heat and distance from the coals are controlled to provide a slow cooking; it usually takes around two hours to cook asado.”
