ABOUT THE DISH 

Argentinian cuisine is packed full of flavor and is heavily influenced by the numbers of migrants traveling into the country. Food is very important in Argentina and families can usually be found around a table passing a platter of “asado”, Argentinian barbecue. We love working with one of Argentinas most famous condiments, chimichurri. It’s packed full of flavor from garlic and cilantro.

Step 4: STRETCH DOUGH

Place a piece of foil, about 2.5 feet long, on a solid surface and cover with half the dusting flour. Place 1 rested dough ball on the flour. Using your hands press out the dough around the perimeter, leaving the center raised slightly. Continue to press this out to about 2-3 times the original size into an oval shape.

Pick up the foil with dough, transfer to the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes until bottom of crust is crispy and chard and top of the crust is cooked through. Remove from grill. Thinly slice sirloin.
