Grill Ribeye on date night with a nice glass of malbec! TGIF!
We wanted to make something different for our Friday Night Date Night this week and drew our inspiration from Lomo Saltado which is a traditional Peruvian Steak Stir Fry. When we say inspiration, we mean "loosely interpreted" as this dish was not a stir fry at all. We combined various techniques and influences to come up with this dish that we are sure you will enjoy as much as we did. Please grab a nice glass of Malbec and enjoy our recipe for Peruvian Style Rib Eye on the Big Green Egg.
