Lomo Saltado

Serves 6
Cuisine: Argentinian
Category: Roasts, Soups & Stews, One Pan
A beloved traditional Peruvian stir fry, Lomo Saltado starts with the simple ingredients: marinated beef, onions, tomatoes, peppers and French fries. Influenced by Chinese cuisine, it is commonly served alongside steamed rice and cooked in a wok, but a large skillet will do the trick. Aji amarillo peppers are traditionally used but can be hard to find, so we’re using bell peppers and jalapeños as excellent substitutes.
