Two powers greet each other

Argentines love meat, but we also love pizza. What do we do, then? Of course it is! : pizza matambre. Are you tempted yet?


As if the   matambre   was not wonderful enough on its own, someone came up with that he could be conjugated with another of the great Argentine passions: the   pizza   . This is how one of the most applauded dishes is born in restaurants and in the houses:   pizza matambre   . On the grill is the summum of pleasure, but it is also very well baked. Do you want to do it? There goes the recipe.


For the matambre

  • 2 pork swatches
  • 300 g muzzarella cheese
  • 200 g cooked ham
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • Oregano
  • Olive oil
  • Olives (green, black or both!)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the sauce

  • 200 g tomato puree
  • 2 onions
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place the matambre on the grill with the fat upside down for 25 minutes on moderate heat.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce: chop the onion and reogala with a little olive oil. Add tomato puree, seasonings and let it cook.
  3. On the grill, turn the matambre and springy.
  4. Add mozzarella into pieces (or grated) ham, sliced tomatoes and chopped hard-boiled eggs.
  5. I kept cooking over moderate heat until the cheese melts. Add oregano, a little olive oil and olives. And ready! Pizza slaughter for everyone.

You want me to be even more tender?

If you have time, there is a previous step before throwing the meat on the grill. You have to boil the matambre in water and milk with bay leaf, garlic, onion and chimichurri. Leave it about an hour and a half, and then, yes, straight on the grill. Or baked, if you're not lucky enough to have one.
