  • Nori seaweed sheets — Toast the sheets lightly over a flame for a few seconds to enhance their flavor.
  • Chimichurri sauce — Use homemade or high-quality store-bought chimichurri sauce for the best flavor.
  • Grilled beef — Marinate the beef in chimichurri sauce before grilling to infuse it with Argentinian flavors.
  • Avocado — Choose ripe avocados that are slightly soft to ensure a creamy texture.
