    ShanChef's Note:

    This Cuban stew is made by slow cooking a flank steak until very tender. Simmering it for a few hours makes it extremely tender. Ropa Vieja means "old clothes" in Spanish.

      Excellent although I found it to be VERY SALTY. I would recommend not adding the 1 cup of liquid from the pot and just use a cup of plain water. Other than that, It was a DELICIOUS dish expecially over rice and I will be making it again!!! I made this recipe using already made Sofrito by Goya that I found in the grocery store and used eye of round steaks that I cooked in the crockpot on low for 6 hours along with the sazon and water. The meat was soooo tender! Thanks for posting!!!!
