This dish of stir-fried beef, onions, peppers and tomatoes is an example of chifa, or Chinese-Peruvian cuisine. It’s usually served with white rice on the side and french fries.
- 1 pound Beef Tenderloin Sliced into 2-by-1/2-inch strips
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
- 1 Red Onion Large, cut into 12 thin wedges
- 2 Tomatoes Medium, cut into eighths
- 2 Tablespoons Parsley Chopped
- 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce Or tamari, low-sodium
- Ground Black Pepper
- 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
- 8 ounces French Fries For serving
- 2 cups White Rice For serving
- Skillet or Frying Pan
- Season the beef with the salt. In a frying pan or large skillet over high heat, add the oil. Add the beef and sear until it’s deeply caramelized, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-high. With a slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a plate.
- Add the onions to the same skillet and cook, stirring, until they begin to soften and their edges darken, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, 1 tablespoon of the parsley, the vinegar, soy sauce or tamari and a few cracks of pepper. Cook, stirring, until the tomatoes have softened, about 2 minutes.
- Return the beef and any accumulated juices to the frying pan or skillet and toss gently to combine. Reduce the heat to low. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the remaining parsley and the lime juice.
- Toss with the french fries, and serve family-style, with rice on the side.
