Bistec a lo Pobre
Bistec a lo Pobre means "Poor Man's Steak", but the size of the portion is anything but poor. Bistec a lo Pobre is a traditional South American dish served, as seen in the photo, with a large sirloin steak, grilled onion, two fried eggs and a side of potatoes, most commonly french fries. You will find this dish on the menu of any typical Chilean restaurant in Santiago, Chile. If you can handle heat, I recommend slathering the plate of food in the ubiquitous red chile sauce, called "ahi" and washing it all down with a "chop" beer, which is a Chilean term for a large glass of draft beer.
