From Where it Comes "The Asado" - (Roasted Meat Argentinean Style)

The origin of the Asado goes back to the time when the cave man learn to master the techniques of making fire, he noticed that his food (hunting) was put tastier and longer lasting when it was roasted. The Asado, as we know in ARGENTINA, hails from the Pampa Region in southeastern Argentina. Formerly, this was a region of animals transport. In the middle of nowhere, transporters, known as drovers, had only basic resources to survive: leather goods, meat, wood to suspend and fire kept burning. Then the drovers gathered around the fire, telling their stories and smell the steak, the only alternative for survival. Today, the Asado is a universal language. You can even have other names, other forms of preparation. But anywhere in the world, the Asado or Grilled Meat is synonymous with joy, brotherhood, friendship and freedom.
