Ropa Vieja (Cuban Meat Stew)

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Made the recipe, expecting it to be full of flavor. The end result was OK, but seemed lacking- not enough seasoning overall. I did omit the olives, since I hate them, but I don't think they would have added much to the overall recipe. Next time, I will try using more Adobo seasoning on the meat as well as adding the Sazon, bullion, and garlic to the meat. Maybe browning the spices onto the meat will up the flavor intensity. I would also recommend simmering a bit longer- my meat didn't shred easily even after the maximum time.
