Locro is one of the national dishes of Argentina. The dish is a hearty corn-based thick stew with meat. People prepare it in various ways. Some add pork, some beef, sausages, or smoked bacon (pancetta). Other ingredients are vegetables, especially corn, seasonal spices, and herbs to add rich flavour. One important condition—the dish should be served hot. Of course, Loсro goes great with Argentinian wine!
