In Brazil, asado is called churrasco, and although the method of cooking is similar, it is seasoned with Brazilian spices. Charcoal is predominantly used instead of embers of wood, and Brazilians tend to cook the meat on skewers. In some places, the meat is seasoned with salt and a bit of sugar.In Mexico, there exists a similar tradition known as “parrilladas” which incorporates various marinated cuts of meat, including steaks, chicken, and sausages (longaniza, chorizo, andmoronga being especially popular). These are all grilled over wood charcoal. Vegetables are also placed over the grill, especially green onions (cebollitas), nopales, and corn (elote).
Here is my Asado recipe:
1kg pork butt shoulder slices marinated for 3 hours or overnight(preferably)
2 tbsp soy sauce
Note:Originally Asado comes with beef meat but nowadays pork version is widely accepted.The beef version is being used for noodles.
Asado in my kitchen looks like this,with thick red sauce,the aroma is so inviting…olives are missing..too bad,the whole gang missed them but it doesnt matter anyway,the taste is the same..authentic in its chaos..a fusion and its great.
While eating my Asado with steamed Japanese rice,I began to miss Siopao back home…. and dont you know that you can eat this separately with white buns or chinese mantou?..in fact is has become a favorite filling also in our own version of dinner rolls..our Pandesal.
Yes, a scoop of asado in a bowl of beef noodle soup is not bad and in fact its a tradition, its a dish…a favorite comfort food of most folks back home.We are known for mountain of rice and lovers of steaming hot bowl of beef noodle soup with asado flavor!
Yes,Asado is a versatile dish and I am thinking of enjoying my mashed potato with it next time. The meat is tender,the sauce is tasty…a chaos again… and if you are ready to embark on a different journey with your palate…Hmmm..this is such an awesome challenge..why not try it..with mantou bread, with your favorite dinner rolls, with paratha or indian bread…or with mashed potato? or in a bowl of noodles..?… lol! I know..I know… in a bowl of noodles is weird..but yap.. its real and its good… Take care everyone..I will try my best to answer all your lovely messages.I am busy nowadays but I will make time…For now..lets eat,lets giggle and lets be merry..
