Chorrillana is a Chilean dish consisting of a plate of sliced beef with french fries, scrambled or fried eggs, and fried onions.

Because of its large size, it is usually served as a dish to share. There are several recipes for the chorrillana, depending on the restaurant and the chef. The base of beef and fries is the only constant. Traditional recipes mix scrambled egg, fried onion and sliced beef. Some preparations may use chopped frankfurter sausages, chorizo, tomatoes, bananas and seasonings such as garlic or oregano.[1]

In Peru, Chorrillana refers to a sweetish sauce that originated in the coastal resort town of Chorrillos, near Lima. [2]
