Tasty Cuban Ropa Vieja...enjoy!

Top Review by Rita~

Tender flavorful and hearty!
I served over Recipe #464686
The only changes I made was double the recipe and used chicken broth. I also did cut the meat across the grain so the strands wouldn't be to long.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the flank steak on each side, about 4 minutes per side.
  2. Transfer beef to a slow cooker. Pour in the beef broth and tomato sauce, then add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, tomato paste, cumin, cilantro, olive oil and vinegar. Stir until well blended. Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours, or on Low for up to 10 hours. When ready to serve, shred meat and serve with tortillas or rice.
