Welcome to Pablo Kim's Asado or as we like to call them #Pabloscarneada. The truth, or as we like to call it in Argentina: "la verdad de la milanesa" is that I started doing these Asados, bbqs or Carneadas, because I wanted to eat this stuff. For the longest time, I could not find anywhere that would do this. So, I decided to do what anyone who can't find what he/she is looking for, do it myself.
Let me explain a little bit about "Asado", it is a term that is freely thrown around in Argentina. Any gathering of friends where there is any sort of combination of fire and meat (whether it is pork, chicken, goat, beef or a combination of two or more) is referred to as "un asado" or if we wanna call it something cute we apply the diminutive, and call it "un asadito" . With that said, the great majority of asados consist of beef.
Now, there is another very important distinction to make, and that is that we have asados or asaditos, but "asado" is the name that we give to a specific cut, and that is short ribs, or ribs really. Now, the way that we cook these ribs is very different to how American(in all its regional variations) style bbq is done. I always get this question, even from friends and family:
Would you say that it is better?
The answer is: Absolutely not!
Pablo handles the grill while wood burns in the forefront.
It is just different, and as such I do have to recognize that different places have different traditions, and I look forward to compare notes with anyone who is open to it! And to share, and try new things!
Now, if the question was: Which one do you like better? Then, I'd undoubtedly say I like Argentine style better! But I may be biased here. So, try it and draw your own conclusions!
These are some of the photos from our first event, enjoy!
