Ropa Vieja


beef, onions, green pepper

Cuban stew, featuring shredded flank steak, tomatoes and olives, can be made up to two days in advance.

Ropa vieja is Cuban national dish. Named "old clothes" from its look, the exact origin of this meal is a mystery. A few sites suggest it was brought to Cuba from the Canary Islands, although no historical references to that exists.
