Slow Cooker Ropa Vieja
Ropa vieja is a traditional dish in Cuba, and throughout the Caribbean. This yummy dish consists of shredded beef with a richly flavored tomato sauce and slow cooked vegetables. The dish can be braised, or cooked in an oven, but for ease, we like to make the dish in a slow cooker. Serve the meat over rice, and have black beans on the side to complete the dish. Enjoy!
Add all ingredients except flank steak and olives to a 5-6 quart slow cooker, and stir to combine. Place the flank steak on top, put the cover on, and cook for 8 hours on low.
After 8 hours, remove the flank steak, and shred with 2 forks. Add the shredded meat and olives to the slow cooker, and stir. Serve over rice with cilantro and fresh squeezed lime juice on top. Enjoy!
