Recipe 1Lomo saltado – (Peruvian beef stir fry ) . Steak Saltado or Chicken Saltado wonderful Peru lunch

WHAT IS LOMO SALTADO?                                                                                                                                      I took one of Peru’s most emblematic dishes, “Lomo Saltado” and lightened it up a bit – without losing any of its’ amazing flavor. This dish is made with strips of sirloin , peppercorn , cumin , stir fried with tomatoes, red onion, soy sauce, cilantro and finished with French fries – what a combination right?

Cut beef tenderloin along grain. Season with salt. Remove seeds and veins from ají pepper and cut lengthwise into ¼-inch wide slices. Set aside. Repeat these steps on the tomato. Cut onion lengthwise, into 3/8-inch wide slices. Set aside. Slice scallions; set aside.

Heat wok. When smoking, add vegetable oil cut garlic a teaspoon of butter and sugar and soya sauce. Turn wok so that oil covers its surface. Wait until oil is smoking, and add beef. Sear. Add onion and ají pepper, sauté and flambé over high heat. Beef should be medium-rare, and peppers and onions seared but slightly crunchy.

Add wine, vinegar. Let reduce to about a cup of liquid. Season with oregano. Taste for salt; add more if needed. Finally, add tomato, parsley and scallions. Mix thoroughly, and remove from heat. Serve with French fries and rice.

About portions depends about the number of people .Good appetite and enjoy the Cusqueña beer.
