Peruvian cuisine is renowned for its rich blend of flavoUrs and cultural influences. Among these is "Chifa," the delicious fusion of Peruvian and Chinese culinary traditions. One of the standout dishes in this category is the "Saltado de Brócoli, Pollo y Carne" - a savoUry Beef, Chicken, and Broccoli Stir-Fry. This dish is a popular staple in Chifas (Peruvian-Chinese restaurants) across Peru.

What is Peruvian Broccoli, Beef and Chicken Stir-Fry?

This dish combines tender pieces of chicken and beef with crisp, vibrant broccoli, creating a flavourful and satisfying stir-fry. The secret to its incredible taste lies in the marinade, which typically includes soy sauce, vinegar, aji amarillo paste, and a variety of spices. The marinated meat is then stir-fried at a high temperature in a wok, giving it a delightful smoky finish.

How to Make This Broccoli Stir-Fry?

Follow these steps to prepare this amazing stir-fry:

  1. Marinate the Meat: In a large bowl, combine the beef and chicken with soy sauce, garlic paste, vinegar, aji amarillo paste, cumin, salt, and pepper. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes to soak up all the flavoUrs.

  2. Prepare the Vegetables: Chop the tomatoes, broccoli, onion, and bell peppers. Boil the broccoli in a large pot of salted water until tender-crisp, then drain and set aside.

  3. Cook the Rice and Chips: Cook the rice according to the package instructions. Fry the potatoes until golden brown.

  4. Stir-Fry the Meat and Vegetables: Heat a large pan or wok over high heat with a bit of oil. Add the marinated chicken and beef, stir-frying until they are browned and cooked through. Add the onions, soy sauce, and additional spices. Continue to stir-fry until the onions are translucent. Next, add the broccoli, and finally, the tomatoes and bell peppers.

  5. Add the Chips: Once the stir-fry is almost cooked, add the fries and mix everything together until well combined and heated through.

  6. Serve: Serve the stir-fry hot, accompanied by the cooked rice.
