Recipe Notes

In Peru, home cooks usually use chuck steak for this recipe, which is more economical. You can use sirloin, skirt steak, or any lean / thin cut of steak you prefer.

For a vegetarian version of this recipe, try substituting a grilled portabella mushroom for the steak (and of course omitting the egg). There is also a vegetarian version of the tacu tacu recipe on its recipe page (here).
