Foods: Steak, onions, tomatoes, oil, minced garlic, seasonings like goya, salt, etc., rice, french fries, water, optional: tomato sauce
Tools: Stir-fry type pan, large enough for your whole meal, pot for rice, cutting board, meat knife, vegetable knife
- Easiest way is to cut up all your ingredients (steak, onions, tomatoes) in French cut style (like french fries). Keep tools clean as you will cross contaminate if you cut the veggies with meat residue. Separate each of the ingredients in separate containers.
Once everything is cut up, the hard part is done.
- Start making the rice, so it cooks while you do everything else. By the time you’re done, the rice will be done.
- Each one cup of rice = one teaspoon of oil & one teaspoon salt
- Rinse out & clean the rice in the pot, once you find it clean enough, add enough water so there is a half-inch of water above it.
- Add in the salt & oil you see fit to the rice
- Put to boil, with an open top
- Once it’s boiling, turn down the heat to low or # 2, and put the top on
- Will be done within 20 minutes or so, check to see when rice feels cooked, then turn off stove.
- Most important step: the seasoning. This will be the base of your flavorings for the lomo, and will flavor the juices that arise from the main ingredients of the steak, tomato, onion, French fries.
- Medium heat flat pan: drop in some oil
- Get a diced small onion & equal minced garlic in there & golden them up
- Dash in any extra seasonings like your adobo, garlic salt, pepper, salt, tomato paste, etc.
- Once your seasoning is goldened up and ready, throw in all your meat. Cook it into the mix of seasoning & you will see the juices arise from the meat. One you’re done getting it set, you may taste the juice to get a feel for what your meal will taste like. You may then add dry seasonings if needed, or liquid seasonings like water or tomato paste if it seems dry.
- Almost done. Since the rest of your veggies are ready to throw in, add in the tomato and onions to the meat.
- Last, throw in the French fries and stir it all up. You don’t want to cook the veggies & fries too much, or it will turn to mush & you wont be able to differentiate what your are eating once it hits the plate. You want to be able to see the pieces of each onion, tomato, French fry, and steak.
- The rice will be done so you may fill a plate half with rice, and half with your lomo saltado & you’re ready to eat
