About the Dish:
Lomo Saltado is a popular Peruvian dish that combines Asian and South American flavors. It is made with stir-fried beef, onions, tomatoes, and spices, and is typically served with rice and French fries. The dish originated in the late 19th century when Chinese immigrants in Peru fused their culinary traditions with local ingredients. Lomo Saltado has since become a beloved dish in Peru and is often considered a national dish.
