Inspired by lomo saltado, a dish with Peruvian origins, this stir-fry combines thinly sliced steak with French fries, seasoned with soy sauce, garlic, red onion, tomato and jalapeno. The Peruvian version is often made with steamed rice, too, but this one focuses on the beef and fries.



  1. Bake the fries as the label directs. Meanwhile, toss the steak with 1 tablespoon soy sauce, the grated garlic and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a bowl; set aside 10 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak in a single layer and cook, stirring once or twice, until browned but not cooked through, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon.
  3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to the skillet. Add the red onion and jalapeno and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and the sliced garlic; cook until the tomatoes start breaking down, about 3 minutes. Return the steak and any collected juices to the skillet along with the remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce and the vinegar. Remove from the heat; add the fries, parsley and cilantro and toss. Season with salt and pepper.
