Peruvian Beef Stir-Fry (Lomo Saltado) | Pink Wings

So my little brother lived in Peru for a couple of years and before he came home I was blessed to go out and visit him. I still tell my husband that to this day Machu Picchu is by far the most beautiful place I have ever been. I ate a few unorthodox things there (including guinea pig) but I remember loving everything, and my little bro will sometimes re-create Peruvian yumminess for us at home. One of the most common dishes there is called lomo saltado, and it's essentially a stir-fry consisting of beef, fresh vegetables and fries. It's good stuff and you will find it at any Peruvian restaurant. So I got some tips from my bro and put together a recipe for it along with Alexia Fries.

Normally this recipe uses normal fries rather than sweet potato fries but I've been obsessed with sweet potato lately so I used these Alexia ones and they ended up really yummy. Alexia is my faaaavorite for fries, guys. They're super yummy and all-natural. My go-to was always the sweet potato waffle fries (which are to die for), but I branched out on my Walmart trip this time and also bought the Spicy Sweet Potato Fries and the Crispy Onion Rings, which I'm saving for our next grill party. Any Alexia fry would be good for this recipe though, because they are nice and crispy, which is important because the sauce in this dish can easily make for soggy fries. So here is the recipe:

P.S. Check out Alexia Foods' Facebook and Pinterest for more recipe, deals, etc.





Peruvian Beef Stir-Fry (Lomo Saltado)
Makes 2-3 servings

  • 1/2 package Alexia fries
  • 1/2 lb. beef tri tip, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
  • dash soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper


Directions:

Bake your fries according to the instructions.

Warm a large skillet over medium heat with 1-2 Tbsp oil. Once warmed, fry your beef until it is just done. Remove to a clean dish.

Coat your pan with another 1-2 Tbsp oil and fry your onion and jalapeno until the onions are transparent. Season with the vinegar and soy sauce. Then add the beef and tomatoes, and stir gently. Taste and add more soy sauce or salt and pepper as needed. Remove from heat.

Stir in the baked fries and garnish with parsley. Enjoy!
