All about the Asado de tira – Short ribs

Asado de tira is extremely similar to what we know as a short ribs, and it is one of the most traditional types of barbecue in Uruguay.

It is cut horizontally, ensuring excellent flavor and good succulence.

But we know very well that for a barbecue to be complete, well seasoned meat and good side dishes are also important, right?

For this reason, Asado de tira is usually served with a portion of french fries or something similar.

It is seasoned with provolone cheese, green leaves, fine salt, black pepper, and it may include cognac, dry wine and soy sauce in its recipe.

But of course, those last ingredients that I mentioned (mainly the alcoholic ones) are optional and it depends on your taste.
