Lomo Saltado is a typical and popular wok dish from Peru. It includes red onion, tomato, spring onion, strips of steak and a spicy sauce and is traditionally served with chips and rice. The dish originated centuries ago. The origin of the dish lies with Chinese immigrants who emigrated to Peru in the eighteenth century. Because they had to make their traditional recipes with other ingredients, which are available in Peru, a mix was created between the two cuisines. The Chinese influence in this Peruvian dish provides a diversity of flavors and it is not without reason that this dish is so popular in Peru.
As with the Causa Limeña and the Ceviche, the 'Aji Amarillo', made from yellow Peruvian chili pepper, gives the dish a special taste. You can buy this essential ingredient at the toko (we bought it at Tjin's toko in Amsterdam) or on Mariëla's website.
Vegetarian? Mariëla gave us an alternative: replace the steak for mushrooms or tofu.
