Ropa Vieja- Pressure Pot

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by GabyMex

Ropa vieja or Old cloth(in English) is a Cuban dish, really good. My husband showed me how to make it. It is really easy to make.... If you do not have a pressure pot you can let it simmer for an hour... Enjoy it...

Best Ropa Vieja we have ever had! I wasn't sure about the extended time in the pressure cooker, but I followed the recipe pretty well (except for using beef instead of chicken stock) and the meat melted in the pot. It was absolutely delicious served with homemade black beans and white rice.
