Welcome again to the home of Healthy Recipes & list of dishes, Today i will guide you how to make “Cuban Ropa Vieja” I made this Delicious recipe a few days ago, and I absolutely loved it and enjoyed it with my family. It came out very tasty and flavorful.
As usual after that i maked this “Cuban Ropa Vieja” i send it first to all of my followers on My Pinterest Account to try it first and these was some of their rich reviews, opinions, suggestions and great recommendations:
- “karen” : And 5 more stars too! I made this with a 4 lb chuck roast, doubled all the ingredients and added a LOT more garlic (that’s my personal preference, but 2 cloves sounded way too light for this much meat!)The only other change I made was to add 2 packets of Goya sazon and some capers near the end. This recipe is as good as ANYTHING you’ll get in a cuban restaurant(even in Miami). Served it with moros y christianos (black beans & white rice) for a really traditional cuban meal. A good squeeze of lime on top is all it needs. do try this..you won’t be disappointed!
- “lisa” : My husband is Cuban and he loved this dish! As suggested by other reviewers, I increased the amount of garlic. I did add some extra cumin and some salt towards the end to adjust the flavors.
- “ema” : I bought a crock pot specifically for this recipe. I could not have been HAPPIER!!! I made this ropa vieja for my boyfriend’s 30th birthday and I got nothing but rave reviews for days to come! The only changes I made was I added an entire head of garlic (chopped) and 1/2 a 7oz jar of diced red pimientos, in addition to all the other ingredients. I also took out some of the liquid approx 1 hour prior to finishing (on the 4 hours HIGH mode), shredded the meat then, and added 2 tblspns of Brown Sugar, then stirred. This really made the flavors come alive by the end of the 4 hours. Probably one of the best recipes I’ve ever made! Served over white rice, black beans, w/ salad. THank you so much!!
- “anderson” : Hi! This is my recipe. When you send things in AR tweaks them. I definately add more cumin and vinegar (apple cider) and don’t add the cilantro till serving. I also add a sazon packet and bay leaf. Hope you love it as much as my family does!
- “anna” : I was happy to find this quick version of a recipe I got from a gourmet magazine and it was just as good! As per the gourmet version, I added a lot more garlic (5 cloves but will probably use even more next time) and 1/4 cup of capers at the end, which added a nice salty/tangy flavor. Next time I will try this with a can of drained tomatoes rather than the sauce because I think there was more than enough liquid with the beef stock. I think the nicest thing about this recipe is that it uses many fresh ingredients rather than canned or powdered soup, etc. that seems to be popular in crock-pot cooking. This might take a few more minutes to prepare than some other crock-pot recipes but it is definitely worth it!
- “amanda” : my grandmother is Cuban and makes Ropa Vieja. When I told her I made it …she tried it and loved it. This recipe just might be as good as hers. Love it , love it, love it. Only suggestion is…if you want it a little saucier….add more tomato sauce if you are eating over rice, we like it that way. Cook on low 6 hours for tenderness, and use flank steak; skirt steak is ok, but doesn’t shread as easily) Mmmmmm
