  1. I made this Ropa Vieja using a beef roast that I had in the freezer. It was delicious and so easy! I added some minced garlic and extra green chili's to this recipe. Great over rice and in tortillas! I also used the leftovers in homemade enchiladas. YUM!

  2. This looks so good! What a great way to use flank steak.

  3. Dara, I agree. I really want to try it!
