Meat and poultry




Lomo Saltado is a traditional Peruvian dish of stir-fried beef and fried potatoes, served with rice. The beef gets a boost of sweet-and-sour flavor from a vinegar-brown sugar-soy sauce marinade, spiked with GOYA® Yellow Hot Pepper Paste –Ají Amarillo.

This distinctive spicy paste is made from puréed, fresh yellow chile peppers called ají amarillo, native to Peru and South America. A tiny spoonful of the paste adds a subtly sweet, full-bodied flavor that is simply irresistible. In Peru, this beef stir-fry is the ultimate comfort food. It will be in your household too!
