Did a "Lomo Saltado", a typical Peruvian meal, for lunch before the World Cup final

I did something similar to this yesterday, minus the beef. It's my Chilean friends recipe for what he calls his chilie. Had the hardest time finding coriander here! Which is so very odd to me. I eventually tracked it down, after searching loads of shops and St Josephs market, in a French supermarket.

He tells me that every South American country has it's own version, so it was nice seeing yours :)

Today I cooked a typical dish from Peru, it's called "Arroz Chaufa"

True.. I remember when I was a teenager and we went on a school trip to Ecuador. The moment we crossed the border I went to the restaurant and looked for this "Lomo Saltado"... and the taste was not as good as in Peru! :P Didn't know Chile had something similar. What I know for a fact is that there are different variants of cebiche (fish marinated with lemons, chili, onions and salt) along the south american coastline. This is an unbelievable meal and a must-to eat (at least) once in your life ;)

Hahaha nothing is ever as good as when you have it at home. I haven't heard about the second dish, I'll ask my neighbours about it and see what all the fuss is about :) So weird again that you responded to this today and I had actually been eating chilli again for lunch   :D

I'm trying to get up the courage to eat some of the oxtongue I prepared yesterday.  I've had pressed tongue before and liked it, in restaurants and from the deli.  Just like steak, it's just muscle.

But this is a wee bit personal because it used to say moo to me.

All oxtongues used to say moo, I know that.

The recipe book is very helpful.  It features a lot of suitable recipes.

There's this ethic of honouring every bit of an animal instead of wasting it, to which I generally subscribe, and to which we've subscribed to a T in this case.

And by the way, here's a joke:

A man couldn't make up his mind what to have when out at a restaurant, so the waiter said, "We have very lovely oxtongue today."

The man replied, "Yeuch, I'm not going to eat something someone else has had in their mouth!"

The waiter asked, "Would you like a nice fresh egg?"  :angel

I had a look at that yesterday and started salivating, so I made it for dinner tonight.  It tasted fabulous!  Thanks for the recipe.  That one's going in the repertoire.  :smth023

We used Painted Mountain Corn, which we grow ourselves - it's an heirloom variety as used by native Americans before America was "discovered"...
