Ooey gooey cheese that you can't say no to.

If you're looking for traditional Argentine food, odds are you'll find steak and provoleta on the menu. Provoleta is an appetizer or side dish of simple seared and melted provolone cheese, seasoned with herbs and spiced and served with plenty of bread for dipping. It's fondue at its least pretentious, and it's a great reason to break out the cast-iron skillet (which helps keep the cheese warm and melty). We borrowed this recipe from Chef Victor Albisu, of Washington, DC's South American grill, Del Campo.

Says the chef:

"Who doesn't like seared and melted cheese? The crust is the best part."
