Food Facts

Cuban in origin, this dish is popular in many Hispanic countries. It got its name because the meat is shredded (like old clothes). In some countries, it is called "torn clothes."

Special Extra

The broth which the meat is cooked in makes a great base for your favorite homemade soup. Or for added flavor, use it instead of the water when cooking rice.

Variation

Omit the wine.

Serving Suggestion

Serve over hot cooked rice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this recipe is phenomenal. this recipe is phenomenal. i will make this dish again & again. it tastes so good & the meat is very moist. i served it like how its pictured over white rice. there is a bit of confusion with the name though, its called ropa vieja which means shredded clothes & thats what it looks like but, in most south american countries its cooked alot differently with different ingredients. but as with many spanish dishes they vary alot between countries. either way this recipe rocks! you should def try it!!!

Good flavors, except that the shredded steak got super mushy and balled up when mixing it in the end with vegetables. Be sure not to over cook the vegetables. And once meat and vegetables are mixed together, don't cook longer than a minure otherwise, I think, you'll have the same problem I did (balled up ingredients). As leftovers, my husband and I enjoyed it more in a tortilla (meat mixture and rice all together) with a dallop of sour cream. THEN it was SUPER good!

Its so healthy and delicious. I will make this for my father for fathers day.
