Lomo Saltado & Green Sauce

I love this recipe!  but it’s so intense to make—and then again SO worth it!  I’m going to have to put it back into rotation.  I always use frozen french fries and bake them in the oven while I chop the vegetables.  I made homemade fries once, but it was too much effort and I didn’t like how they turned out for Lomo Saltado.  Crispy fries are the best because when they soak up the meat sauce they don’t get soggy.

Ingredients:

  • beef steak
  • 1 white onion sliced
  • 4-5 medium tomatoes quartered or sliced depending on the size
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro chopped
  • 2 jalapenos thinly sliced long on the diagonal
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 dashes of soy sauce
  • vegetable oil
  • prepared french fries frozen or homemade
  • steamed white rice

Sauce:

  • 1/4-1/3 cup mayo
  • 2-3 jalapeno peppers
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 3-4 green onions
  • one lime juiced
  • salt and pepper

Method:

Green Sauce:

  1. Put everything in a blender and blend until smooth.

Lomo Saltado:

  1. Brown the meat over medium-high heat in a large skillet with a bit of oil. Remove the meat from the pan, let rest for 5 minutes, thinly slice.
  2. Saute onion, jalapeno,  and tomato.
  3. Add garlic, cumin, vinegar, and soy sauce.
  4. Add the meat back to the pan and turn off the fire.

  6. Serve over white rice with the green sauce on the side.
