Doesn’t that dish look tasty? If you have never tried Peruvian food, Lomo Saltado is a great meal to start with. You can find this savory beef stir-fry in many Peruvian restaurants around the world.
The recipe starts with strips of sirloin steak that are marinated and infused with soy sauce and a variety of spices. They are then sauteed with tomatoes, onions, and parsley. The traditional way to serve Lomo Saltado is with both white rice and French fries. Although this combination may seem odd to some people, it is a perfect example of the fusion of Peruvian style and Chinese culinary traditions that started in the 19th century.
