  1. Bring 4 cups water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch slices.
  3. Heat 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a deep skillet. Cook sliced potatoes in batches until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Pour bread crumbs into a shallow bowl. Season beef with salt and press into the bread crumbs until evenly coated.
  5. Heat remaining 1/4 cup vegetable oil in the deep skillet. Cook beef in batches until browned, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

  7. Combine onions, tomatoes, chile peppers, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt.
