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.

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

    1. 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.

      2. 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

          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.
