Peruvian Beef Stir Fry (Lomo Saltado)
My husband’s favorite food comes from Peru. Every weekend he chooses to eat at Peruvian restaurants around my area and almost always orders the Beef Stir Fry (Lomo Saltado), a flavorful meat dish that is juicy, delicious and served with rice and fries. How could you go wrong?
Yup you heard that right.. the double starch: fries, and rice. Sometimes people mix the Beef Stir Fry with the fries so they can soak up all the juice. Boy am I drooling right now.
To make this dish, all you need is a few ingredients you already have at home and 15 minutes (or even less) if you choose to serve it different things, you can also add a salad or even a delightful ceviche.
A Beef Stir Fry or Lomo Saltado is perfect for a healthy and easy quick weeknight dinner idea. If you want, you can also substitute the beef for chicken. Both ideas are delicious.
My daughters always ask for this dish although my 8-year-old prefers it without the onions and peppers. The parsley on top gives it a nice lemony taste that brings the whole dish together so don’t omit it.
You can serve your beef rare, medium or well. Just remember that beef is much more tender and tastes better when it has a little pink inside.
So, now you have to think, what to do with all that spare time you have? this quick dinner will save you so much time that you will need to record more shows on your DVR or maybe some Netflix.
