Every Thursday, I get this craving French fries. Last Thursday was no different. I’m sitting in the waiting room of my eye doctor’s office and wishing they would hurry up and call me back, so I can make my way to Wendy’s. No such luck. I ended up waiting in for over an hour and while I’m waiting I get this bright idea to make Lomo Saltado instead of getting French fries. If you aren’t familiar with Lomo Saltado, it’s a Peruvian dish with Asian influences. It’s a beef stir fry that’s served over rice and FRENCH FRIES. YES!!I searched my love, my favorite site, PINTEREST for a good recipe. I came up with a few interesting recipes, but they were in Spanish. EEK! I can speak and read a little Spanish, but to translate a recipe is a different. Thankfully, I used the trusty Google Translate to translate the recipes I found. I took ingredients from a few different recipes and combine them to make my perfect recipe.
Being the little rebel that I am, I decided that I wanted to alter “my” recipe. Instead of cooking the French fries in the oven, I cooked them on top of the stove. (Bad decision) Cooking the fries on top of the stove means they did not get crispy like they would have in the oven. (Note to self: Cook fries in the oven next time)
