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.Dan Whalen has never been considered a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy.
