In This Recipe
Prepare your sweet potatoes by cutting them into 1/4 inch french fries and soaking in cold water for at least 20 min. Bake them in an oven on a cookie sheet tray for 45 min @ 375 degrees F. Set Aside.
Heat in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the sliced meat with salt and pepper to taste. Fry the meat until just cooked, and the juices begin to release. Remove the meat from the frying pan, then cook the onions, with additional oil if needed, until they are transparent. Stir in the tomato and aji amarillo; cook until the tomato softens. Pour in the vinegar and soy sauce, add the French fries, cover, and cook until the beef is done, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with chopped parsley to serve.
