Skillet & Slow Cooker – "Ropa Vieja" (Cuban-Style flank steak)

"Ropa Vieja, which literally translated, means "old clothes," is a very traditional Cuban plate and pretty easy to make.  I use this same kind of meat to make brisket (flank steak) as well.  This is one way to make "Ropa Vieja." There are many different ways, depending on your taste.

I would love to hear new ways to make this dish. If you have a delicious "Ropa Vieja" recipe, please email it to: and I will choose the best one and feature it on the Mommy Warrior recipe page!


Original recipe makes 6 servings 

    1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the  flank steak on each side, about 4 minutes per side.
    2. Transfer beef to a slow cooker. Pour in the beef broth and tomato sauce, then add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, tomato paste, cumin, cilantro, olive oil and vinegar. Stir until well blended. Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours, or on Low for up to 10 hours. When ready to serve, shred meat and serve with rice and beans if you like.

      Remember to always cook with: LOVE, so it turns out delicious!
