Lomo Saltado


  • 1 lb beef sirloin
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • Frozen or freshly prepared French fries

For the marinade

  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the green sauce

  • 1 cup cilantro
  • ½ jalapeno, seeded
  • 4 oz. feta cheese
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Slice the beef into thin strips and set aside.
  2. Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a medium bowl, then add the beef strips and stir until coated.
  3. Marinate in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  4. While the beef is marinating, make the green sauce.  Use a food processor to combine cilantro, jalapeno, feta cheese, olive oil, canola oil, water, vinegar, lime juice, salt, and pepper.  Pour into desired serving container and set aside.
  5. Before removing the beef from the refrigerator, slice the tomatoes and onion into large pieces.
  6. If cooking the French fries in the oven, allow enough time to begin heating according to package directions.  If deep frying the French fries, fry in batches while the beef is cooking with the onions and tomatoes on the stovetop.
  7. Begin sautéing the onion until it begins to brown.  Add the beef to the pan including any remaining liquid from the marinade.
  8. Sauté until only a little pink remains on the meat, then add the tomatoes.
  9. Stir and cook until the beef is completely cooked.  Serve over a bed of French fries, drizzling the green sauce on top or serving the sauce on the side.
