Asado is a traditional South American technique for cooking beef and other types of meat on a grill, or parilla. Chinese and Filipino chefs have adapted the technique to prepare braised beef and pork roast that is easy to prepare and a nutritious alternative to grilled, barbecued beef. Serve your Chinese-style asado with basic fried rice and a snow-pea stir-fry for a well-rounded and nutritious meal.
