A Peruvian meal that my Japanese mother loved. This is her quick, altered version of the meal. Unfortunately she never measured the ingredients, so I always have to guess and taste-test this at every step. You can substitute ground turkey for pork if desired. I usually end up adding more cumin, garlic, and soy sauce right before serving.

I agree with the previous reviewer. The flavors are on the subtle side. I doubled the garlic, cumin and canned tomatoes. I also added 2-3 teaspoons of Tapatio hot sauce. Like the previous reviewer, I’m no Peruvian chef. While I feel my changes gave a better flavor profile—U worry that I might be steering away from Peruvian cuisine. My next thought is to add interest with the rice. I’m going to look for a cilantro-rice recipe. Read More

I liked this a lot and it made a lot of leftovers. I cubed russet potatoes instead of the bag of frozen. Read More

Delicious dinner! I forgot the soy sauce while cooking and just added a little after. Don’t think much is needed as it over powers other flavors if you use too much. Read More
