Recently, I had the luxury of eating at a local Peruvian restaurant, and if you’ve never had Peruvian food, you are really missing out!

The flavors are bold and fresh, and absolutely divine. I opted for the Lomo Saltado dish, which is basically a sirloin stir fry served over french fries or potato slices. It was sooooooo good!

My version eliminates the potatoes, in order to save some Points, and bulks up on veggies and protein. But the traditional vinegar and soy sauce seasoning is so incredibly simple, yet so wonderfully flavorful.

This Weight Watchers stir fry recipe ends up being a real treat. My while family loved it, and it’s now becoming part of our regular meal rotation. This recipe is a must try, you guys!

Flavorful, light, and super easy to make, this healthy Lomo Saltado Recipe is a treat for the eyes as well as the palate. Traditionally served with fries or potatoes, my skinny version eliminates them to save on Points, but is just as delicious.

    Sorry, low carb, yes…saltado, no! This is nothing more than Pepper Steak. A saltado must have potatoes.

  2. I made this last night for supper and it was SO GOOD! The only thing I did differently was substitute fresh serrano peppers for the jalapenos (my grocery store was out of fresh jalapenos). It was probably a tad bit spicier because of this but, for me, spicier is better. ;-) I served it over brown rice but honestly, it could’ve just as easily been served without it and it still would’ve been a great meal. Thanks so much for the delicious recipe!
