Lomo Saltado - Peruvian Beef Stir-Fry and Potatoes

The Peruvian One-Pan Meal

Lomo Saltado is a traditional Peruvian dish of stir-fried beef and fried potatoes, served with rice. The beef gets a boost of sweet-and-sour flavor from a vinegar-brown sugar-soy sauce marinade, spiked with GOYA® Yellow Hot Pepper Paste –Ají Amarillo.

This distinctive spicy paste is made from puréed, fresh yellow chile peppers called ají amarillo, native to Peru and South America. A tiny spoonful of the paste adds a subtly sweet, full-bodied flavor that is simply irresistible. In Peru, this beef stir-fry is the ultimate comfort food. It will be in your household too!

Tip By La Cocina Goya

Perfect your Stir Fry

The key to the perfect stir-fry – meat that browns quickly and vegetables that retain their crisp bite: a hot pan. To ensure your pan stays hot, add the meat and vegetables in small batches (about 1 cup per batch). This prevents the temperature of the pan from dropping and encourages a dark caramelized coating on meat and crisp – not soggy – veggies.
