The Peruvian cabbage arrimado is a classic Peruvian dish. It's like a Peruvian-style "stir-fry" made with cabbage, yellow peppers, onions, tomatoes and black olives and it can be prepared with pork or beef. This dish was used by my grandparent’s neighbors who were originally from Peru. You can serve it with white rice, but my grandfather loved to eat it in tacos with flour tortillas. Either way, it's super yummy and the whole family will love it.
