A traditional Peruvian dish which includes spicy "steak" and is served with rice and fries. Garnish generously with fresh chopped coriander, parsley and Peruvian aji chilli sauce.
We decided to make the Vegan Steak by the Happy Pear because it's so tasty, simple and the flavours actually go perfectly with this Peruvian classic.
Cook your choice of rice according to the packet (traditionally brown rice is used, but we only had white to hand!)
Chop your potatoes into thin sliced fries and place in a medium to large baking dish.
Place in a pre-heated oven on Gas Mark 7 (425 degrees F / 220 degrees C) and cook for 30 minutes (or until they look done!).
Start by slicing up your steak pieces into thick slices.
Whilst the fries cook, mix soy sauce, vinegar, veg stock and cumin in a bowl.
Add oil to a large frying pan and on very high heat and stir in the onion and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and cook for 1 minute and stir in the soy sauce mixture from earlier and cook on a simmer for around 10 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste (around 1/2 tsp of each) and mix well.
One your fries are cooked, throw into the mixture and coat with the sauce where possible.
Garnish with coriander, parsley, aji chilli sauce and serve with your rice. Enjoy!
