  • 2 lbs Skirt Steak or Flap Steak cubed

Steak Marinade:

  • ¼ cup Soy Sauce
  • ¼ cup White Vinegar
  • 1.5 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1.5 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 2-3 medium Limes juiced
  • 1 tbsp Canola Oil


  • ½ cup Red Onion sliced
  • ½ cup Red Bell Peppers sliced
  • 2.5 tbsp Green Scallions
  • 2 tbsp Aji Amarillo Paste
  • 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Minced Ginger
  • 1.5 cups French Fries

Aji Amarillo Mayo:

  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Buttermilk
  • 1.5 tbsp Aji Amarillo Paste
  • 1.5 tbsp Chopped Cilantro
  • 1 medium Lime juiced

For Serving:

  • Cooked White Rice
  • Chopped Cilantro


  • Begin by adding all the cubed steak into a bowl along with the steak marinade. Mix together thoroughly and let marinate for at least 2 hours but ideally overnight in the fridge.
  • Next day, add all the ingredients for the Aji Amarillo Mayo together in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Preheat a high heat fire (around 400F) for direct cooking. Add a wok or cast iron skillet over the flames 1 minute before cooking.
  • Pull out the steak and discard the excess marinade. Adding 1 tbsp of canola oil to the wok, add the steak to the skillet and cook for 7-8 minutes until well browned and around 120F internal. Make sure to stir the steak around to get a nice crust formation, then when the steak is done pull it off and let it rest.
  • Add to your skillet the red onions, red bell pepper, minced garlic and minced ginger. Stir and cook until the veggies have begun to soften (around 2-3 minutes). When the veggies are softened, add the green scallions to the dish along with the cooked steak and french fries. Stir and let simmer over the fire for another 1-2 minutes until fully mixed, then pull the skillet off to cool
  • Add some cooked white rice to your skillet for serving. Garnish with chopped cilantro and your Aji Amarillo Mayo. Serve and enjoy!
