Lomo Saltado Recipe

We just got back from an incredible trip where we traveled most of Peru, and one of our favorite things we ate was the classic Peruvian lomo saltado. 

This dish is a perfect cross between steak frites and beef stir fry.  

After eating the dish a ton and learning from some chefs, we’re going to show you how to make the best lomo saltado recipe at home.

We’re going to step it up by using Omaha Steaks Butcher’s Cut Filet Mignons.  

We love cooking special dishes with Omaha Steaks filet mignons because their master butchers trim each of the filets twice, they’re aged for at least 30 days, and they’re packed with lean tender flavor.

We are absolutely obsessed with our version of this Peruvian lomo saltado recipe because it’s better than a traditional stir fry, and everything is improved when you add french fries to the mix.

What is Lomo Saltado?

Lomo saltado is a classic Peruvian dish that we fell in love with while traveling through the country.  

Lomo saltado translates to “sautéed beef”, and the stir fried beef is cooked in a Peruvian-Asian fusion sauce consisting of tomatoes, onions, soy sauce, vinegar, and more. 

We also love it because it pulls inspiration from steak frites as well because it can be served with both rice and french fries.

How to make Lomo Saltado

An authentic lomo saltado recipe is traditionally made with strips of sirloin, although we stepped it up and made it with Omaha Steaks delicious filet mignons.  

From there, you flash sear the steak strips in a pan or wok, add in veggies, and then toss everything in soy sauce and vinegar.  

It’s a simple dish to make, but it will wow anyone looking to spice up their traditional stir fry.

Lomo Saltado Ingredients

Peruvian Lomo saltado doesn’t require many ingredients, but the ingredients all pack a flavor punch when stir fried together.  

The lomo saltado sauce is formed in the pan by combining the soy sauce and vinegar together with beef stock, garlic, tomatoes, and onions.  

When all of those ingredients are tossed and cooked in the pan together the flavor combines, and all that’s needed is to add back in the seared beef.
