As is well known and continues to spread, Peru has a great natural and cultural wealth and it is precisely its diversity that makes it a country of diversirty that makes it a country of exquisite and varied cuisine. That is why, in our blog, we will talk about one of the most famous and delicious flag dishes: The Lomo Saltado.
We will begin by commenting on its origin. Its beginning dates back to the year 1849, since at that time the Chinese immigrants arrived in Peru, bringing with them their seasoning, their own ingredients and their well-known Wok. The latter helped in the elaboration of several dishes, because it could turn the fritters into sauteed flambé. It was in this way that dishes such at “Beef Tenderloin” and “loin a la Chorrillana” merged and gave rise to the “Saltado”.
Our gastronomy ambassador Gastón Acurio, considers it an emblematic dish, whose roots are nourished by both cultures: the Inca and the Asian (especially China’s).
