Serves: 4
  • 1 Meat District Steak House Premium Angus Beef Tri Tip
  • 1 lb. Frozen French Fries
  • 1 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
  • ½ Large Red Onion, sliced
  • 1 Jalapeño Pepper, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp. Aji Amarillo Paste
  • 2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. White Wine Vinegar
  • 3 Medium-Sized Tomatoes, sliced thick
  • ¼ cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. Chives
  1. Grill the tri tip until internal temperature has reached 130F (more specific directions within blog post). Set aside and allow to rest for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Cook French fries according to package directions.
  3. Add vegetable oil to a large frying pan and sauté the red onion and jalapeño for 1 - 2 minutes over medium-high heat. Once semi-softened, add the garlic, aji amarillo paste, soy sauce, white vinegar and tomatoes. Continue to sauté until tomatoes have softened and are starting to release their liquid.
  4. Split fries among four bowls. Top equally with the spicy tomato sauce, cilantro and desired amount of steak. Serve immediately with tortilla chips and (optional) aji verde sauce.
