Make sure the oil temperature reaches approximately 190ºC before you add the potatoes. Cook in a pan until they’re golden, time will depend on the quantity of potatoes.

3. Starter

Seems that before you enjoy your Asado you’ll be having Empanadas. Good start!

For every guest, estimate one or two empanadas.

To make the perfect meat empanadas you'll have to cook the ground beef first, and then add the chopped vegetables, hard eggs, spices, and the rest of the ingredients to the mix.

The idea is to get all the stuffing in the recipe—after cooking it first—inside the pastry dough well shut.

Finally, take the empanadas to the oven and let them brown until done.

Make sure your fire is well lit and turns into the burning ember that heats the grill.

Time of cooking will vary depending on whether they have bone or if they are greasier cuts, and of course on your liking.
