Ropa Vieja Haiku: "Just finished a bowl. Big props to Goya's kitchen. They nailed this meat stew!" I actually had nearly all of the Goya products on hand, except I had several ice-cubes' worth of frozen homemade Sofrito that needed to be used. Left out the capers (can't stand 'em) and after browning the steak and sauteeing the veggies, I tossed everything in the crock-pot on low for 8 hrs. About half-way thru, I removed the steak and shredded it, and added a much heavier handful of cilantro (c'mon Goya - 1 TB??) prior to serving. My husband ate his (scooped w/ a slotted spoon) in a corn tortilla, while I ate mine slurpy-soupy-style. The flavor isn't intense, but it's unusual enough that I would definitely make this again, although I think next time, I would consider adding some sweet potatoes, or some kind of additional veggie for more stew-ey substance, along w/ a diced chipotle or jalapeno for a little blaze.
