Churrasco Argentino: A Staple in South American Cuisine

Do you like South American food? You may recognize some popular South American cuisine, including the many spicy beef preparations prevalent to this culture. Beef is a mainstay in Argentina and it is estimated that each citizen consumes around 150 pounds of beef per year. One of the very favorite ways to eat beef in this country is in a dish called Churrasco Argentino, traditionally flank steak with chimichurri sauce.
Bring some flair to the table with Latin American cuisine, and try Churrasco Argentino at our South American restaurant in Mountain View tonight!

Argentinian Fare

Argentinians enjoy beef, and this dates back for generations. Ranchers and cowboys still roam the range and ensure that plenty of care and attention goes to the region's cash-crop: cattle. Typically, satisfying proteins, such as beef, are served simply, with a salad and glass of wine.

Traditional Churrasco con Chimichurri

South American fare is known for being spicy with lots of flavor; Churrasco con Chimichurri doesn't disappoint. This dish is traditionally-made with flank steak, an inexpensive though often tough-cut of meat. Marinating the meat in a combination of oil, vinegar, and fresh herbs helps to tenderize the beef, while infusing it with the chimichurri flavor.

Unique Approaches

Try a fresh spin on this traditional dish with some restaurant adaptations that will satisfy and scintillate. For instance, The Voya Restaurant uses hanger steak (not flank steak) and a rich and creamy corn poblano salsa; this is served alongside crisp green beans, fresh pico de gallo, and our renowned chimichurri sauce-bringing a new depth of flavor and texture to the dish.

A Timeless Favorite

Perhaps the reason why this beef dish has remained a favorite among a wide-range of diners is the comfort and sentimentality attached to it. Beef has been served on family dinner tables throughout Argentina, a time when family and friends come together to enjoy a meal. Bring your family to the dinner table with Churrasco Argentino - or your other favorite beef recipe - and see why it is so popular and has been for generations.
