8 servings


French Fries:
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut for french fries (you may also use frozen french fries, from your grocer's freezer section) 
Beef and Vegetables:
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 pounds sliced beef tenderloin 
  • 3 red onions, cut into 8 pieces each 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice 
  • 4 yellow chile peppers, sliced
  • 4 tomatoes, cut into 8 pieces each 
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 steamed purple potatoes, cut into 8 pieces each
  • Cooked rice, for serving
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for sprinkling


For the french fries: Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes and saute for about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

For the beef and vegetables: Heat 1/2 cup of the oil over high heat in a skillet. Add the beef and saute until browned on all sides. Move the beef to a plate and set aside, covered.

Return the pan to medium-high heat and add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Add the onion pieces and saute until the edges are slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the parsley, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, lime juice, chile peppers, tomatoes and some salt and pepper and saute until the tomatoes have softened, 2 minutes. Add the beef and purple potatoes and toss.

Serve the beef and french fries alongside rice and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
