So, the real name of this dish is Lomo Saltado, my husband's favorite. The original has french fries and you eat it with a side of white rice. For this detox, I had to nix the rice and substitute the french fries with sweet potato fries and...Voilà!
I also experimented with making vegan ají, which some of you know as "the green sauce." Here's a picture of the perfect, detox-approved, bite.
This is actually a pretty quick dish once you have everything chopped. I'd recommend you use the grass-fed beef. It's a bit pricier, but we're not eating a lot of red meat nowadays, so it was a real treat. You'll also need my favorite ingredient, ají amarillo.
1 bag of sweet potato fries (non-gmo)
1 lb. of sirloin steak (grass-fed)
1 large red onion
3 medium tomatoes on the vine (organic if possible)
2 green onions
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 tsp of garlic
2 tsp of ají amarillo
Paso a paso:
1. Bake sweet potatoes according to directions on bag. (Or you can make your own from scratch)
2. Cut steak into strips. Also, cut the red onion and tomatoes into wedges, and chop green onions.
3. Heat some olive oil in a large pan and quick fry the steak.
4. Add the garlic, ají amarillo, and S&P to season the meat. Stir for a couple of minutes until medium rare and remove from the heat.
5. In a smaller pan, heat some olive oil and add the onions. Let them cook for about 2 minutes and then add the tomatoes and the green onions. Add S&P al gusto and cook for another 2 minutes.
6. Add onion-tomato mix to cooked meat.
7. When the sweet potatoes are ready, add them into the meat-onion-tomato mix.
8. Serve and eat immediately! Provecho.
