What does Chulada de Vieja mean

Ropa Vieja

  • OK, so I think those Tablespoons of salt were meant to be teaspoons. I would also skip the cayenne. If you want it to be more flavorful, just add one celery stick and one carrot and remove when you remove the bayleaves. I understand that the pelattis are normally better quality tomatoes, but it sure could benefit from using fire roasted diced tomatoes.

  • Where are the various peppers and Spanish onions ... a lot missing from this recipe to call it Ropa Vieja or "Old Clothes" translation. I may be a white cracker who grew up in S. Miami but I hung out with a lot of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Islander, South American indigenous folk in the early 1970's and this looks nothing close to the comfort food I grew up with except the flank steak. Every thing I've tried from Bon Appetit has been very delicious but this, I will not bother with. This recipe does look good but NOT Ropa Vieja good.

  • Overall it was very good. I find that 2 tablespoons is way too much and it was a tad salty. Given that, I didn't add the olives. I'll make it again and adjust salt to taste while veggies are cooking.

  • Made this for the fam and they were fans. Low key forgot to add the vinegar in the end but still tasted great! Left out the olives because we didn't have any haha ​​All i was able to find in the store was 2lbs of meat instead of 3 but even still it was enough for a family of 4, especially with rice and beans on the side. Didn't even adjust the seasonings and came out fine.

  • I really enjoyed this recipe and it was so much more cost-effective (and delicious) to use chuck roast. I did it all on the oven and a half recipe and it worked out really well. Mine came out a little salty but I realize that I had dry brined my chuck roast prior and will just need to be careful with what I add next time. The dish made tonight's Passover special. Thanks, Rick!

  • I was in Cuba a couple months ago and ate ropa vieja almost every day. To mirror the sweetness of the ropa vieja I had eaten, I used vidalia onions and only half the cayenne called for. What delicious. Will make again but will omit the cayenne and slightly reduce the salt.

  • No mention of when the pimientos go in, this recipe sucks

  • Being born and raised in South Florida Cuban food is a staple. This is a great dish the only thing I don't agree with is the cayenne traditionally this recipe is not that spicy. I did think there was too much salt, next time I will cut back. I used the Chuck Roast and Seasoned before browning which is not mentioned in the directions. Also I substituted the white wine for dry Vermouth. Vermouth is my go to cooking alcohol it just makes everything better.

  • One word - INCREDIBLE! My first time cooking Cuban food and this was seriously one of the best dishes I have ever made. I made it with chuck roast and the only alteration I made was doubling the cayenne. A serious must-try!
