Lomo Saltado #OneMoreBite

   I think I spend alot of last month eating potatoes. Potatoes with everything. It's just something about being able to eat what you want, when you want. I kinda fall into a cycle? Maybe I just went to Sam's club and got the huge box of fires. The one with like six huge bags. Why am I talking about fires, oh cause of Lomo Saltado. 

Via. Wikipedia 
Lomo saltado is a popular, traditional Peruvian dish, a stir fry that typically combines marinated strips of sirloin, or other beef steak, with onions, tomatoes, and other ingredients, served with fried potato slices (french fries) and rice. The dish originated as part of the chifa tradition, the Chinese cuisine of Peru, though its popularity has made it part of the mainstream culture.

Looking at the pictures on Wikipedia, I see I did it my way. I'm not one for following the way it should be done. I put more sugar in kool-aid then should be, hell I mix two or three favors at a time. Yeah, I live on the wild side. 

Here's my Lomo Saltado recipe. Listen to 2Pac while you make it. 


For the Baked Fries:

    canola cooking spray
    1 medium (5.3 oz) potato, russet or yukon gold, washed and dried
    1 tsp olive oil
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

For the Beef:

    1/2 lb lean sirloin, cut into small, thin strips
    kosher salt, to taste
    1/4 tsp cumin
    black pepper, to taste
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1 medium red onion, sliced into thick strips
    2 mini yellow bell peppers or 1 large
    1 large jalapeno, ribbed and seeded, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 medium tomato, sliced into wedges
    1 1/2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
    1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    1/4 cup chopped cilantro


Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

 Cut the potato lengthwise into 1/3-inch thick slices; cut each slice into 1/3-inch fries. Place on the baking sheet and toss with oil to evenly coat. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place on a single layer onto the greased baking sheet. Bake uncovered on the lower third of the oven for about 25 minutes or until tender crisp and golden.

 Heat a large wok over high heat. When hot add the oil and the steak, cook about 2 minutes, until browned on both sides. Add the onions, bell pepper, jalapeno and garlic and cook 2 minutes.

 Add the tomato, soy sauce and vinegar and cook 1 more minute. Season with more salt as needed, remove from heat and finish with cilantro. Serve immediately with french fries and divide evenly between 2 plates.
