I looked up south american dishes, and this one came up: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2014/06/lomo-saltado-peruvian-beef-stir-fry.html (Lomo Saltado). It was ALMOST exactly what I wanted to make… but I made a few changes… of course.
So, here is my version:
For the Beef:
- 1 lb lean sirloin tips
- kosher salt, to taste
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- black pepper, to taste
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/4 medium red onion, sliced into thick strips
- 2 mini sweet yellow bell peppers or 1 large
- 1 large jalapeno, ribbed and seeded, chopped
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- Handful of whole grape tomatoes (10-15)
- 1 1/2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce (use tamari for gluten free)
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup frozen broccoli
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
Meanwhile, season meat with salt, garlic salt, pepper and cumin. Heat a large wok over high heat. When hot add the oil and the steak, cook about 2 minutes, until browned on both sides. Add the onions, bell pepper, jalapeno and garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, soy sauce and vinegar, broccoli and cook 1 more minute. Season with more salt as needed, remove from heat and finish with cilantro. Serve immediately with french fries and white rice and divide evenly between 3-4 plates.
I served mine with Trader Joes Parmesan Garlic French Fries and white rice.
And now, for the quote of the day:
