Citizens, one of the great pleasures in gastronomy for your beloved and glorious leader is indulging in a sandwich of character, savor and pedigree.
The chivito fits this bill on every level!
The chivito is a sandwich-style national dish of Uruguay, and consists primarily of a thin slice of filet mignon (churrasco beef), with mozzarella, tomatoes, mayonnaise, black or green olives, and commonly also bacon, fried or hard-boiled eggs and ham.
It is served in a bun, often with a side of French fries. Other ingredients might be added into the sandwich such as red beets, peas, grilled or pan-fried red peppers, and slices of cucumber.
FYI – the word Chivito literally means “little goat” or “baby goat”.
The Chivito came to be born in Punta del Este, Uruguay, at a restaurant called “El Mejillón Bar” in 1946, when a patron from Argentina ordered baby goat meat (“chivito”).
She was looking for a quick meal, and since the restaurant owner, Antonio Carbonaro, did not have this specialty, he served her toasted bread with ham and sliced filet mignon, seasoning it with different ingredients.
My version of the recipe adheres to traditional values and will become your next favorite sandwich, Citizens! I do add a delicious Chimichurri salsa for extra zip, . #badpun 😉
