The BBQ sauce of Argentina which is great on steaks, shish kabobs and vegetables. This will add spice to your BBQ. From the Star-Ledger paper May, 2006. Wines suggested: for beef, serve with Cabernet Sauvignon (the robust flavor stands up to spicy foods) and for veggies, serve an Argentinian wine called Malbec from Quara, named for the Incan term for llama (this is rich, fruity and easy to drink). I guessed the yield!


  1. Mince, or finely chop, the first 4 ingredients together and then add salt and pepper flakes.
  2. Add the oil, vinegar and water to the above mixture. Blend with a whisk and marinate meat and/or veggies overnight in this sauce.
  3. Grill meat/veggies over medium heat.

We used a food processor, which saved a lot of time. We marinaded summer squash and red bell peppers in one ziplock bag and marinaded steak in the other ziplock bag. We ate with spinach/strawberry salad and cubed potatoes spiced with cumin and oregano.
