Lomo Saltado

Lomo Saltado is a popular Chifa dish from Peru. Chifa is a type of cuisine that combines elements of Chinese food with traditional Peruvian ingredients and techniques.

Although this is typically made with beef it can also be made with chicken. Lomo Saltado at its core is a soy sauce based stir fry that typically includes sliced steak, onions, tomatoes, and French fries in a rich brown sauce served with rice.

This may seem like a strange combination but the end result is certainly delicious. And don’t forget a drizzle of the bright and tangy green salsa to complete the dish!
