Day 3: Choripán Sandwich

Day 3 of the World Cup of BBQ sees us move to South America, to Argentina, to cook Choripán. Argentina didn’t have a great day on the field with a shock 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia.

Choripán is a popular street food in South America, especially Argentina, where it is popular street food that you will find around football stadiums. It consists of a chorizo sausage grilled and cut in half, served on a baguette or crusty bread, with optional Chimichurri.

Preparation and the Cook

This was going to be a relatively straightforward cook. I ordered some Argentinian sausages from Casa Argentina (and also cheated by ordering some Chimichurri) from them also.

Argentinian Sausage

Once the BBQ was ready to cook on, I sliced the bread and toasted it before cooking the sausage. Depending on how hot the BBQ is I sometime cook sausages indirect and just do them direct to add a bit of char and colour towards the end of the cooking. With these I just cooked them directly on the Char-broil gasser.

Once the sausages were ready (internal temp 65°C), I placed a little bit of salad on the sliced baguette, cut the sausages in half and placed them on the baguette before spooning over the Chimichurri.

The Verdict

For a fantastic pre-match sandwich, you can’t go wrong with Choripán. Crusty baguette with a really tasty sausage and a little added spice from the chimichurri. A cracking sandwich!!
