Ropa vieja is a Cuban national dish and roughly translates into “old clothes”. It landed this name due to the shredded beef’s tattered appearance, such like a mess of rags.
This Caribbean beef stew consists of braised skirt steak, tasty bell peppers, and onions among other robust flavors and ingredients. Cooked in the slow cooker, this is ideal for a quick and easy weeknight dinner.
Serve this versatile dish over rice, or in warm tortillas for a burrito or taco style meal. Don’t forget the hot sauce on the side for a fiery kick! This will make an excellent meal to serve for guests, if you want to take them on an exotic journey without leaving the comfort of your home.
