Grilled Provolone Cheese From LCBO Food & Drink Magazine Provoleta is a traditional Argentinian cheese. It has a texture that allows it to be barbecued. Using provolone gives the same taste but cannot be used on the barbecue and must be cooked in a nonstick pan instead. The weight of the cheese in the ingredients is an estimate. Try to get two 1/4" thick rounds of the cheese.
