Ever since cattle were brought to Argentina by the Spanish in the 16th century, beef has been an integral part of Argentine gastronomy. Particularly significant in Argentine culinary heritage is the ‘asado’ style of cooking, a method of barbequing historically used by cattle herders called ‘gauchos’, who would cook their food on makeshift open air grills.
The key feature of the asado- style of cooking is the ‘low and slow’ ethos behind it, where meat is charred unhurriedly over a fire that has burned right down to the embers, allowing the steak to cook evenly, never coming into direct contact with a flame. In doing so, the meat also takes on a wonderful smokey flavour.
Honouring a second Argentine tradition, we pair our limited edition asado steak pasta with chimichurri, bringing fiery freshness and fantastic colour. Choose this dish for World Pasta Day and be transported to a Southern American asado cook-out in the open grasslands of La Pampa!
- Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Salt the water (around ½tbsp per litre).
- Cook the pasta in the boiling water for around 3 minutes.
- Whilst the pasta cooks, put the chimichurri in a large bowl and add a tablespoon of the starchy pasta cooking water. Stir to loosen.
- Lift the pasta out of the water and transfer to the bowl of chimichurri. Toss gently to coat.
- Sprinkle over the pangrattato. Serve immediately. Buon appetito!
