My 15 year-old sister’s plate before
And her plate after
That must have been one good plate of food!
But WHAT is it?
This looked pretty familiar to me … on a recent trip to South America – Bolivia, I had something similar several times… I showed the photo above to my husband and he said … “SILPANCHO!” This dish is a mainstay in Bolivia and traditionally is served on Friday nights. Serving fried eggs on top of just about everything is pretty typical in South American in general. Usually Silpancho comes with fried sliced boiled pototoes if made traditionally but just like everything else – it has been “Americanized” and often is served with “French” fries..lol. Sometimes it is lightly breaded. You can get this dish fast food style in the food courts of the malls.
However Bolivia does not have the market on thinly sliced steak served with fried eggs on top, and served with some form of potatoes and often rice. In Chile they call it Bistec a lo Pobre (Poor man’s steak) and in Equador it is Churrasco con Huevos and in Colombia it is Bistec a Caballo (Steack on Horseback). I doubt there are Bolivian restaurants around SLC – so guessing that they went to Pantrucas and had Bistec Lo Pobre – (the table cloth was a give away – lol )
