Beef Tomato Stir-Fry (Lomo Saltado)

Beef Tomato Stir-Fry (Lomo Saltado)

Lomo saltado is a traditional Peruvian recipe that has distinct Chinese flavors. This dish is often served over white rice and with French fries. I first tried it several years at a Peruvian restaurant in New York City, and I feel in love with it instantly! It was so flavorful but yet so simple.

Of course I had to go and recreate it at home! It’s a very simple dish (especially since I skip all the marinading that’s traditionally done), but there’s one trick to it – slice the beef thin.

  • 1 lb beef, thinly sliced (place into the freezer to make the beef round more solid so that it's easier to slice thinly)
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos (or to taste)
  • salt to taste
  • Coconut oil for cooking.
