Hot, fresh empanadas, anyone? While I'd certainly love to be exploring beautiful Argentina right now, we don't only have to hop on a plane in order to enjoy its tasty cuisine. Here are some Argentinian recipes you can make in your own kitchen!
"There are as many variations of empanadas as there are cooks in Argentina. This version was developed by BA Test Kitchen Manager Gaby Melian, who is from Buenos Aires and was taught as a little girl by family members how to make them. After years of perfecting her method, she prefers the empanadas baked, not fried, and the addition of green olives and raisins in the filling is essential."
"Now, every time I see a chimichurri recipe on the internet, I cringe a little. Not because they’re loaded with ‘wrong ingredients’, but because they’re processed to an all out puree in blenders and food processors. What is supposed to be a loose, oil based condiment becomes a herbed mash, which is more like eating baby food with your churrasco, rather than a beautiful silky condiment that drips over your steak or chicken or fish. No, no no bueno."
"My family is from Argentina, which has a strong Italian heritage and large cattle ranches. One of our favorite Argentinian recipes is this all-in-one lasagna packed with meat, cheese and veggies."
