Argentine Chorizo and Provoleta
Does anybody know where I can find Argentine style chorizo (big, robust sausages meant for the grill - nothing like Mexican or Spanish chorizo) or provoleta (sliced cheese circles meant for the grill)? Or morcilla (blood sausage)?
I've tried WF and Central Market to no avail.
Haven't seen them (or looked, for that matter) myself, but I would definitely check out Fiesta. I'd be surprised if they carried the cheese, but I know they have different South American sausages in the frozen section, and I feel like I might have seen morcilla at the UT location.
After a trip to Argentina where we had it at least twice a day, we have tried unsuccessfully many times to recreate provoleta. We have tried tons of different types of aged provolone from CM and Fiesta but always end up with a grill full of melted cheese. There must be some secret trick to making it that we haven't discovered. If anyone knows, please share...
Central Market just had an Argentina themed week. Last week I bought some Mr. Tango Argentinian style chorizo. They probably still have it. It was quite fantastic on the grill. I bought the caliente style. They also had blood sausage and one other that escapes me. I also got the coiled pencil-link Salchicha Parrillera sausage. It was really good also.
An argentinian blog I read has a recipe for provolenta...http://www.asadoargentina.com/provole...
