5 THE STEAKS!
Can you imagine eating over 220lbs of steak in a year??? That is the average beef consumption per capita in Argentina making it the 2nd highest in the world! Why do they consume so much beef you may ask...many of the cattle farmers still use the older methods of pasture and their cattle are still grass-fed which makes their beef much tastier! Be sure to try one while you are there!
