Lomo Saltado

Lomo Saltado…I’m sure a lot of people don’t even know what that is…so let me tell you…It’s pure deliciousness on a plate! A combination of Peruvian & Chinese. I usually order this yummy meal when we visit our local Ecuadorian restaurant El Sitio in Collingswood, NJ. But this time I wanted to try my hand at making it at home…end result – Fabulous!

Beef Curry
This is similar to the first dinner I ever cooked. Being the last kid at home, (all my siblings, Linda included, had all gone off to college or gotten married).

I made them thin and doubled them up for extra seasoning surface!!! Continue reading
