Cuban Traditions: Ropa Vieja, Slow Cooker magic « Comidas Via MelissaBels

Ropa vieja

Ropa vieja

Beef Stew never sounded so beautiful, or tasted so good. The literal translation for Ropa Vieja in Spanish is “Old Clothes”. This comes from the concept of shredded beef in a medley of vegetables and special sauce.  A mishmash of ingredients, so to speak.  That said, it is absolutely decadent when made the right way.

I first had this dish at an authentic Cuban restaurant here in New York- uptown Manhattan.  I was hesitant my boyfriend insisted I try it. I am so glad that he did. It was amazing! I immediately started to take taste bud inventory of what I was eating so that I could replicate at home.  While there are a ton of ingredients, you pretty much throw everything in a slowcooker and leave it. There isn’t much skill involved- which makes this recipe that much better.
