Peruvian Lomo Saltado

Sorry the picture doesn't quite do it justice.. I keep forgetting to take a picture before we've already eaten!
  • Start off by cutting your golden potatoes into strip, for french fries and soak in cold water..reserve in fridge(this releases some of the starch)
  • Slice your steak into strips and marinade in a ziploc bag: a few dashes of cumin, paprika and soy sauce, with a little bit of salt and pepper. reserve
  • take out your potatoes and drain and dry
  • cut up a few baby carrots, roma tomaotes, white onion, red onion, green onion, and cilantro.
  • heat olive oil in pan on med-high. remove meat and fry until meat is about medium, remove and reserve in bowl.
  • add 1 tbsp olive oil, add onions and carrots and fry for 1 minute. add tomatoes and meat . add a few splashes of white wine vinegar and soy sauce. cover and simmer on medium heat.
  • fry french fries on med-high for a few seconds, drain, then turn up heat to high and fry again unti golden brown, drain (drain in strainer, not paper towel).
  • add french fries to stir fry and cilantro and a few sprinkles of parsley. add salt and pepper to taste!

This one tastes pretty authentic for you Peruvian food lovers! Serve with rice and black beans (recipe to come)
