Directions

  1. Traditional Peruvian style stir-fry of sauted beef tenderloin, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, soy sauce, garlic with fried potatoes and rice.
  2. Boil the broth in a small saucepan until reduced to 1 cup, about 8 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Bring 2 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil. Add rice. Cover, then reduce heat and cook about 15 minutes.
  4. Mix in the corn. Cover and let stand 5 minutes, then fluff the rice with a fork.
  5. Meanwhile, heat enough oil in a large, deep nonstick skillet to reach the depth of 1/8 inch. Add potatoes and fry until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Heat the 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the beef and saute until brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Using slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a plate. Add the onion wedges to the same skillet and cook until beginning to soften turning with tongs, about 2 minutes per side. Add the tomatoes, chile, cilantro, soy sauce, vinegar, and the reserved reduced broth and cook 2 minutes to soften the tomatoes. Add the beef and potatoes; toss to heat through.
  8. Spoon beef-potato mixture into shallow soup bowls. Serve rice mixture alongside.
