YUM. sadly, i've never had authentic ropa vieja (reason #254 to visit the southwest), but this looks extraordinary! i love every ingredient--thanks for the recipe!

The Duo Dishes

A big plate of old clothes for us please! This is good, good stuff.


darn! I wish I had seen this sooner! My mom just asked if I needed any flank steak before she used it up, and I said NO! NOOOOOOO!!!!!
This looks marvelous by the way.


Wow, this looks like the awesome filling for taquitos at my favorite restaurant. My husband peeped over and is intrigued, so we might be trying this recipe soon! Thanks! :)


Yum! I definitely want to try this one!

Yum. I made a ropa vieja years ago from a recipe I got from a Frugal Gourmet cookbook. It was great stuff. This looks just beautiful.

With all of the cold and rainy weather this June has brought my area, I think a nice slow-cooked piece of beef is still right up my alley.


This looks delicious and is something I will try-it has been in the 90's here for a couple of weeks now and the crockpot is a lot cooler than the stove!

Mrs. L

Grace - I've never seen it on a menu or if I did, I completely missed it. I'll have to look next time.

Duo Dishes - I thought the name was interesting. I probably should have put more about how the dish got it's name.

Sophia - We usually have a flank steak in the freezer all the time since it's great in the crock pot.

Cassaenda - Oh, do try it. Let me know if your husband likes it.

Zoe - On a hot day like today, it would be great to make and not use the oven.

Rachel - I have all the Frugal gourmet cookbooks. I'll have to look to see if it's in one of them.

Lynda - It was over 100 here today, so I didn't even bother cooking.


mmm, I've seen this on the menu at some tapas restaurants and also at a cuban restaurant. I didn't know that flank steak developed that texture with slow cooking! Looks delicious!
