This Cuban classic known as "ropa vieja" in Spanish refers to this savory slow-cooked beef dish that's shredded, like its literal translation: old clothes. We're betting the zesty flavors will make it a favorite on your table!
- 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 (2.5 - 3 lb) bottom round roast
- 1 (8 oz) Can tomato sauce
- 2 Teaspoons chili powder
- 2 Teaspoons cumin
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- 1 Teaspoon black pepper
- 1 Cup broth
In a slow cooker (3-1/2 quarts or larger), combine bell pepper, onion, and garlic and broth ; place roast on top of vegetables.
In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, and black pepper; mix well and pour over roast.
Cover and cook on high setting 7 to 8 hours, or until meat pulls apart with a fork.
Turn off slow cooker and shred beef by pulling it apart with 2 forks. Stir beef mixture and allow to sit 5 minutes.
Note: Serve with rice and beans or on a crusty roll.
