Updated on February 8, 2014
4.5 stars from 2 ratings of Churrasco

A Churrasco is a Spanish term referring to beef or grilled meat, primarily in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay. However, the term varies from country to country. In Brazil, a churrascaria is a restaurant serving grilled meat, as much as you can eat, where the waiters move around the restaurants with skewers of different kinds of meat. In Argentina, a churrasco is a steak usually grilled over hot coals. Featured here is the Chilean churrasco, which is a sandwich comprised of several thin slices of beef, served on a toasted bun, and usually accompanied by tomato, avocado, and sometimes melted cheese. I usually serve the add grilled onions to mine and serve with Fried Potatoes and Ensalada Chilena (peeled and sliced tomatoes served with thinly sliced onion and fresh cilantro lightly tossed in a fresh lemon juice and grapeseed oil dressing.
