Provoleta (Grilled Provolone Cheese)

Fom "Seven Fires" Argentine grilling book by Francis Mallmann. My husband liked this a lot, but it was the only animal protein at dinner and he could live on cheese alone. I liked it, but it won't work as a spread on bread. I preferred it the following day sliced thin as a snack. It's a lot like grilled halloumi cheese, but Provolone is easier to find. You could use one tablespoon dried oregaano instead.
