The Chivito is a traditional dish in Uruguay that's usually either prepared as a sandwich or as a dish, like in this recipe. The ingredients can be varied, abundant or alternated. This dish is usually served on a large oval plate that's filled completely and 2 or 3 people could easily eat from it. Though chivito means goat, this recipe is actually made with beef. I do recommend using a good cut like sirloin or fillet. This way you're sure to have tender and juicy meat. It's very similar to the tenderloin sandwich served in Argentina. It's also made with beef, ham, cheese and fried egg. Here is my version of this delicious Uruguayan dish. MORE + LESS -
