“Grilled Provolone Cheese From LCBO Food & Drink Magazine Provoleta is a traditional Argentinian cheese. It has a texture that allows it to be barbecued. Using provolone gives the same taste but cannot be used on the barbecue and must be cooked in a nonstick pan instead. The weight of the cheese in the ingredients is an estimate. Try to get two 1/4" thick rounds of the cheese.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Brush cheese with olive oil and fry for 45 seconds to 1 minute or until a brown crust has formed on the bottom and the cheese has begun to melt all over.
  3. Let pan sit off heat for 2 minutes or until cheese has cooled enough to remove from pan in 1 piece.
  4. Slide cheese out of pan and flip over so that browned crust is on top.
  5. Sprinkle with oregano and pepper.
  6. Serve with Serrano ham.
