Peruvian Steak and French Fry Stir-Fry

This classic Peruvian dish contains elements of Asian and American cooking. Fusion before it had a name!

Ingredients

12
ounces frozen french fries (about 3/4 of the bag)
14
(1/2 ounces) canned diced tomatoes with chipotle
1
(1/4 pounds) sirloin tip steak
1
red onion
2
tablespoons chopped cilantro
3
cloves garlic
1/4
cup diced pickled jalapeño
Rice

MARINADE

1/4
cup red wine vinegar
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1
teaspoon cumin
1
teaspoon coriander
Salt
Pepper

Directions

  • 1 Slice the steaks into thin strips and place in the marinade. Leave out while you do the rest of the prep so the steak can become room temperature in time to be cooked.
  • 2 Time the starting of the rice so it will be ready when the beef is.
  • 3 Thinly slice the onion, dice the garlic, chop the cilantro and jalapeños.
  • 4 Cook the fries to the package instructions.
  • 5 Start the onions in some olive oil and cook until softened, about 3 or 4 minutes.
  • 6 Add the beef and marinade, cook 3 minutes. Add the jalapeños and tomatoes. Cook 3 minutes. Add the fries, mix, and remove from heat.
  • 7 Serve over rice and garnish with cilantro.

Peruvian Steak and French Fry Stir-Fry

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

South American cooks have this magic way of combining meat and potatoes with vinegar and creating really amazing flavors. This steak and potato stir fry recipe (known as Lomo Saltado) is Peruvian in origin, but has elements of Asian and American cooking. When I first found out it existed, I knew it was my kind of food, and had to make it for you guys right away!

I’m all for making French fries from scratch, but it is a ton of work, and frozen fries work great for a dish like this. Make sure to choose a nice thin variety.



Prepare the fries to the package instructions.





The meat has been marinating in red wine vinegar, soy sauce, cumin, and coriander. The meat and marinade go right into the pan with the onions.



Pickled Jalapenos and tomatoes with chipotle finish the sauce.



In go the fries! Mix in and remove from heat.



Beautiful and tasty. Just the right amount of acidity from the vinegar, spice from the jalapeno, and savory from the meat and onions.
