Beef Ropa Vieja
“This recipe is a quicker adaptation of traditional ropa vieja. While there are many theories to explain the name, there’s no doubt that the meat is shredded at the end of cooking to resemble rags, hence the translation to “old clothes.” Instead of serving this with a carb-heavy side of rice and beans, you can lighten it up by serving it as a “garnish” on a salad composed of beautiful lettuces. And, as a bonus, you don’t need to whip up a dressing; simply use the sauce from the meat.” — Angelo Sosa, co-author of Healthy Latin Eating, Our Favorite Family Recipes Remixed
