How to Grill Argentinian Style on a Stainless Steel BBQ

Want to try Argentinian grilling without the hassle of building a large outdoor grill?  This type of grill is perfect for bringing the authentic Argentinian style of grilling into your home. From marinades to charring, we'll show you everything you need to know to become an expert griller of Argentinian style cuisine.

Preheat your grill.
Before you get started, it’s important to preheat your grill. You should set your grill to the desired temperature for your meat. This is usually around 350-400°F for Argentinian style grilling. Make sure you give the grill a few minutes to preheat and reach the desired temperature. If you’re using a charcoal grill, it’s best to let the coals burn until they are grey with a light coating of ash. For gas grills, make sure you set the right burner settings before preheating. This will ensure that the heat is even across the entire grill surface. You are ready to grill once your grill has been preheated.

Grill your meat for the appropriate amount of time.
Grilling is an art form, and knowing the right amount of time to cook each type of meat is key to achieving delicious results. To get the best flavor out of your Argentinian-style grilling, it’s important to understand how long to grill your meat. The key is to start by heating your grill up to a high temperature. This helps to quickly seal in the flavor of your rubs or marinades and also helps create a nice charred exterior. 

Once your grill is heated, place your meat on the grate and cook for the recommended time. Depending on the type of meat, that may be anywhere from 3 minutes for delicate items such as fish, to 10 minutes for heartier cuts like steaks or chicken breasts. For larger pieces like roasts or ribs, you will want to increase the cooking time accordingly. You should also make sure to flip the meat halfway through to ensure even cooking. 

Be sure not to overcook your meat! If you do, it can become dry and tough, which ruins the flavor. To avoid this, check your meat with a thermometer at regular intervals and remove it from the heat when it reaches an internal temperature of 155-160 degrees F for steaks and pork, 165 degrees F for poultry and 170-180 degrees F for beef roasts. 

Prepare an Argentinian chimichurri sauce for your meat.
To make an authentic Argentinian chimichurri sauce, start by finely chopping two garlic cloves and half a white onion into brunoise. In a skillet, heat a few tablespoons of oil and sauté the garlic and onion until fragrant and tender. In a separate bowl, combine two tablespoons of dried oregano and one tablespoon of chili pepper flakes with a few tablespoons of water to hydrate the spices. Once hydrated, add the mixture to the skillet with the garlic and onion. Next, add one tablespoon of paprika and two tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley to the skillet. Pour in five ounces of cooking oil and three ounces of red wine vinegar. Whisk the mixture until well combined. Finally, season the sauce with salt and pepper according to your taste.

The result will be a tangy and flavorful sauce that is perfect for your meat. This classic Argentinian sauce will add a touch of heat and a zesty freshness to your meal. Enjoy!
