This dish is made of marinated steak, vegetables, & fried potatoes and it is sometimes served over rice. It is one of the most popular recipes in Peru. I am posting it for ZWT 2008. Based on reviews I have cut back on the amount of meat & jalapenos. Thanks for the great feedback...

Directions

  1. Make a paste by combining the garlic & salt. Whisk together the garlic paste, rice vinegar, soy sauce, canola oil, cumin, & ground black pepper.
  2. Place the steak in one bowl & the onions in another. Divide the marinade between the 2 bowls & let set in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  3. Pour a small amount of oil in a wok & turn on medium heat. Once the oil is hot add the steak with marinade & cook until brown. Add the tomato & simmer for a few minutes.
  4. Add the jalapeño, cilantro, & onions with marinade to the wok, slowly stirring until well blended. Simmer for 5 more minutes.
  5. As the ingredients are cooking in the wok, sprinkle the potatoes with paprika & fry in a separate pan. Once done add to the other ingredients.
  6. Serve with a dish of white rice.
