I bought a large (maybe 2.5 lbs) flank steak from Trader Joe's. It was not the best quality, and I made it worse by accidentally setting it on fire. So I've got one charred side--it's rare to medium rare in the middle, though. Do you think it would be good in ropa vieja? I have scraped off the excess carbon, so it is edible as is, it's just not very good.
