Cuban Ropa Vieja
Very, very easy and tasty. The prep time for this was even less than 15 minutes. You more or less throw everything into the crock pot and wait. Do not skip the broiling step which carmelizes the meat and creates a seal. This is essential. The only things I did different were: (1) I did not use flank steak. I figured that it was going to be stewed down incredibly anyway so it didn't matter what the beef was. I used a thick cheaper meat and it was fine. (2) I cooked it for 5 1/2 hours on high. (3) served with fresh lime and cilantro on top and sour cream on the side. And (4) served with black beans and rice. Some of us wrapped everything in tortillas which was amazing as well. Went will with margaritas and mojitos.
