I *love* Ropa Vieja ... and although I always swear that I'm going to order something different when I go to a Cuban restaurant - I never do. This is really good. The recipe would be wonderful as is - but I just amended it a little for my own tastes. I don't remember having Ropa Vieja without green olives in it - so I did add them. I also used the olive juice in place of the white vinegar - since that's basically what it is, anyway. The other thing I did was to increase the onions. I don't think that I "doubled" them, exactly - but probably close to it. I'm adding this recipe to my files!
