Whoa, this is PERFECT! It tastes just like we used to have it in Lima Peru at a great restaurant. Loved the jalapenos for the kick. No leftovers, nada! Thank u Firebyrd for this terrific authentic dish.

Lomo Saltado is from Peru specifically. There is no oregano or jalapeños in this dish.

I am a beginner cook and this came out great. I did add a little bit of soy sauce and used a little less onions as my family does not love onions. Thanks for sharing!!

As a Peruvian myself, I really have to give this some praise...the seasoning is perfect and the fries really hit the spot! Making at least twice a month now!

Demonic - what is pimenton? Also, where is the Peruvian sauce'? Aji amarija or whatever it's called?

This dish came out perfect! It tasted exactly like it did years ago when I ordered it at a Peruvian restaurant. A must try!
