Peruvian Lomo Saltado Recipe


One of Peru’s most popular dishes. A delicious fusion mix of marinated beef, vegetable and fried potatoes created by the Chinese immigrants who came to Peru for work.

500g of beef steak, cut into small strips
Oil for frying

1 red onion, roughly chopped
1 red chilli, roughly chopped
2 large tomatoes, diced
A handful of coriander

125ml soy sauce
25ml red wine vinegar
3 cloves of garlic
Half teaspoon of dried oregano
Half teaspoon of ground cumin
Half a teaspoon of paprika
Salt and pepper

Mix the meat with the marinade ingredients and leave for a least a couple of hours, preferably overnight. Remove the liquid and fry the meat in a little hot oil moving it quickly to stop it burning. Add the onions and cook a few minutes longer before adding the chilli and tomato. Take off the heat and add the marinade. Add the coriander and serve with homemade potato chip, wedges and or rice.
