Lomo Saltado

Gustav Pierson discovered this traditional Peruvian dish on our recent trip to visit the organic fair-trade growers. The dish takes roots in Peru but with Asian (chifa) influences. The dish is basically a stir fry with French Fries and rice. The beef is typically marinated in vinegar and soy sauce and then stir fried with onions, peppers and tomatoes. This is Gustav’s version of the dish he now makes at home!
