Crock Pot Ropa Vieja (Beef, Peppers, and Onions)

Crock Pot Ropa Vieja (Beef, Peppers, and Onions)

Ready in 3 hours

Ropa Vieja is one of those "dishes that keeps on giving." It is supposed to be shredded beef. But when I serve it, it's more like a stew, with chunks of meat. Then when it's cool, I get in there and shred the meat with my hands. It takes only about two minutes and is so much easier than using forks. Then I serve it over spaghetti squash, or, for yet another option, serve in low-carb tortillas with avocado and cilantro.

"We loved this recipe. I always order this when we visit a local latin restaurant. I actually thought this was tastier. I didn't have celery so I added a little celery seed. I love bay leaves, so I added about 5-6. I also added about 1/4 cup red wine. The color and texture was excellent. I will make this over and over. I love crockpot dishes. Thanks for sharing. "

Tasty, spicy and fairly easy to make. I added red wine which made extra sauce. Excellent cold weather dish over steamed rice.

Great. I needed to add some beef broth after a few hours on high so the liquid would cover the meat and stay juicy.
