Ropa Vieja

HillsofBeverly | Jan 19, 201504:20 PM

I've enjoyed Ropa Vieja (savory Cuban shredded beef dish) in a local Cuban restaurant in the past and just made and enjoyed the Saveur version. The capers, olives and other peppers make a very tasty loose dish (served in our house with mashed cauliflower as one member is off carbs on doctor's orders).

Are there any other versions in cookbooks etc. that I should try? I've heard that there is a version from the Canaries that is different from the Cuban but also quite tasty - anyone familiar with it?

At the least, the Saveur version is a thumbs up for a satisfying cold weather dish. That is eaten in warmer weather in its home country...oh well, good use here anyway.
