Ropa Vieja in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
This recipe is basically "shredded Pot Roast", Not Ropa Vieja. Ropa vieja is always made with FLANK steak (which allows for the long 'ropes' of shredded meat, which resemble the 'old clothes' from which the name is derived. No proper Cuban restaurant in Miami or Victor's Café in NYC would use chuck pot roast; they use Angus Flank steak. It is fine for what it is, but this is not Ropa Vieja.
