Argentine Beef Source?

Is it possible to buy online (or anywhere else) Argentine beef? I'd like to have it shipped in, fresh or frozen.

    I was recently at a Sysco food show, through their Chef Ex program they are carrying a line of beef from Uruguay... maybe they raise smiilar breeds http://www.sysco.com/products/chefex/...

      That's correct, no way to tell the difference btw Uruguayan & Argentinean beef.
      However, volumes seem to be small.
      One wholesaler I know that imports ORGANIC (not frozen, fresh only) meat from Uruguay is Albert's Organics.


      They don't sell to the public, but you can try & call them to find out retailers in specific areas.
      You'll have to leave a message.
      If you get a response let me know, I give you $1,000,000, cash. I'm serious.

      Okay, then, who in the states sells the best Argentine-*style* grass-fed beef?

        I recently bought some grass-fed steaks from Tallgrass, and found them very tasty.

        You might be out of luck.

        According to the article below, Argentina is exporting only thermoprocessed beef ( i.e., primarily cooked frozen and corned beef ) to the USA.
