excellent! I used red, yellow, and green peppers. easy to make.

Easy to made dinner. I had ropa vieja before in different Cuban restaurants and this recipe is the best. Thank You

Made this dish and it tasted great!! Awesome recipe will definitely use again!

I never give reviews but I had to on this one. By far the best slow cooker recipe I've tried from this website. It was PERFECT. I paired it with rice and beans. I loved it! I was born and raised...

In addition, I put some cumin. Served it with "moros y cristianos" (rice cooked with black beans), fried ripe platain slices and avocado. I felt like in Havana!
