Lomo Saltado is a Peruvian stir-fry of sorts, and this one is bursting with flavor because of the Aji Amarillo sauce made from hot yellow chili peppers. Lomo Saltado showcases the diverse influences on Peruvian cuisine, from native Incan to Chinese.
12 oz. rib-eye steak, cut into ½ inch cubes
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, plus more for frying

¼ medium red onion, sliced
1 tomato, seeded and diced
3 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
¼ cup Doña Isabel Aji Amarillo sauce
Steamed rice, for serving
Season steak with salt and pepper to taste.
In a heavy skillet, heat enough oil to deep-fry shredded potato (about ½ inch depth). Fry potato shreds and remove to paper towels to drain.
