More About This Recipe
- Let me get something out of the way here: I. LOVE. STEAK.For someone on a mostly vegetarian diet, I eat steak, like, once a year tops. So you’d better believe that when I do eat it, I make sure it’s dang delicious.My latest annual consumption of steak was in the form of this here Lomo Saltado, a.k.a. Peruvian stir fry, a.k.a. steak and veggies on top of fries on top of rice all culminating in what can only otherwise be described as the most magical, the most amazing, the most tastiest dish in all the land. When you’ve got steak and fries together on the same plate, I MEAN… Really. You just can’t go wrong.I have a super-duper crush on this dish for the above reasons, but also because it has crazy-unique, crazy-yummy ingredients that make it a meal. For example, we’re gonna put garlic, tomato paste, vinegar, soy sauce, cumin and beer (oh yeah, did I mention there’s also BEER in this mo’? Well, there is) all up in the steak n’ veggies mixture. But I’ll get to that in a minute. SO EXCITED.If you’re into eating really, really, ridiculously good steak dishes, this is your bestest friend.
