    Actually most of the steaks served in Aruba are USDA....! Of course, there are exceptions, but they're pretty well noted.

    Very true and menus are noted as USDA steak - it is our preference as well. This is why we don’t go to El Gaucho for steak which is known for Argentine beef.

    Is it a "safety concern?"

    Not at all. It’s a matter of preference. Argentine beef can be gamey and more chewy.

    it must be the feed. Argentinian must be lots of grass fed and USDA grain.

    gamey= yuck

    Interesting. When we were in Argentina, that made a big deal about how great the beef was there and I didn't really care for it-it seem to have no flavor.

    I dislike Argentinian beef a lot, I don't enjoy the taste or texture of it at all.
    Trip 38 booked for Feb! Cant wait.

    I've had Argentine beef at Manchebo when it used to be served as a filet and I've had the ribeye at El Gaucho..... enjoyed both, but seemed a little tougher than similar USDA cuts. Had the Argentine tenderloin at Mme J's years ago..... and I remember it as tough as well.

    An interesting read: Argentinean Beef Versus American Beef | Epicurious.com | Epicurious.com
    and: Australian & US Beef — What's The Difference? (steakschool.com)

    As always everyone has a differing opinion. I like the beefy taste and texture of Argentine beef for a change of pace.

    can't find any bacon seeds...
