CBS "The Dish" segment on El Che Steakhouse in Chicago
« on: October 07, 2023, 07:06:35 PM »

Interesting segment on El Che SteakHouse in Chicago.  The owner/chef, John Manion grills Argentinian style.  He cooks all the meats and vegetables on a custom built 12' grill, using live fire wood.  No gas is used in starting the wood fire or in the cooking the meats and vegetables. He actually gives a nod to Weber grills "being in all the back yards" (at the 3:20 mark).   Any of you Chicago guys tried this place out?

I have attended several events where all the food was cooked Argentinian style or with live fire using Argentinian Cross.  In fact, my WKC Avatar is a goat being cooked on a Argentinian Cross at a event in Napa I attended.

It's always interesting to see how one evolves from the beginnings of a culinary chef to a master chef, respecting and embracing the food cultures from

travels abroad. Awesome video! Thanks for sharing.
