Ropa Vieja

This is one of my husbands favorite meals!


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 pounds beef flank steak 
1 cup beef broth
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 small onion, sliced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar


1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the flank steak on each side, about 4 minutes per side.

2. Transfer beef to a slow cooker. Pour in the beef broth and tomato sauce, then add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, tomato paste, italian seasoning, cilantro, olive oil and vinegar. Stir until well blended. Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours, or on Low for up to 10 hours. When ready to serve, shred meat and serve.

    Note: If chuck roast is on sale, I used it instead of flank steak.  Still taste great!
