  1. Prepare the bag of French fries according to package directions.
  2. While the French fries are cooking, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the sliced meat with salt and pepper to taste. Fry the meat until just cooked, and the juices begin to release. Remove the meat from the frying pan, then cook the onions, with additional oil if needed, until they are transparent. Stir in the tomato and aji amarillo; cook until the tomato softens. Pour in the vinegar and soy sauce, add the French fries, cover, and cook until the beef is done, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with chopped parsley to serve.

I'm Peruvian and also think this is a great recipe. Marinating the meat and adding cumin are great tips. Sometimes when I make this I bring home large fries from a fast food joint, then just t...

Wow, this was absolutely delicious! Imperative that the meat is marinated in the vinegar/soy sauce for at least a half an hour. Like others, I added cumin, garlic and subbed cilantro for the p...

My family is from Peru and this is a favorite when we visit Lima, and at home. I marinated the meat in the vinegar and soy sauce. Gave the meat a nice flavor. Used red onion and made my own f...
