Delicious peruvian meals that you can make at home.

Lomo saltado is a popular, traditional Peruvian dish, a stir fry that typically combines marinated strips of sirloin, or other beef steak, with onions, tomatoes, and other ingredients, served with fried potato slices (french fries) and rice. The dish originated as part of the chifa tradition, the Chinese cuisine of Peru, though its popularity has made it part of the mainstream culture.

  • Vegetable oil as needed
  • 1 Pound beef tri tip, sliced 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick

  • Prepare the bag of French fries according to package directions.

  • Pour in the vinegar and soy sauce, add the French fries, cover, and cook until the beef is done, about 3 minutes.
