Step 1

To make french fries, peel and cut russet potatoes.

Step 2

Soak them in water for as long as you can. I soaked mine for a couple of hours.

Step 3

This takes the starch out and allows them to be crispier. Drain, dry and fry.

Step 4

Season the beef with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Add soy sauce, vinegar, beef stock and cumin in a bowl together.

Step 6

Put a pan over very high heat.

Step 7

Add oil and on very high heat cook half the meat, brown on one side, flip over and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Step 8

Remove meat and repeat with second half.

Step 9

Stir in the onion and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 10

Add the tomatoes and cook for just a minute. The tomatoes should hold their shape.

Step 11

Stir in soy sauce mixture.

Step 12

Add salt and pepper to taste

Step 13

Turn off the heat, toss with french fries

Step 14

Add chopped cilantro, green onion and serve with brown rice and aji sauce

Step 15

To make aji sauce, add all ingredients to the food processor and combine until completely smooth. Let sit for a few hours in the fridge if you can. The sauce will begin to separate after a few days, so don't make too much at once.
