Reviewed Ropa Vieja

I won't even try this one because it's NOT ropa vieja. Ropa vieja is always made with skirt steak or flank steak. No matter how good the tv chef, when they cook Cuban they always add something your Mami never used- like cayenne or wine or lots of cilantro.

This was a delicious dish but I tweaked it a bit: I didn't use wine/sherry, I never knew a Cuban home cook who used wine in cooking. Also omitted the cayenne pepper, to keep it more authentically Cuban. But with those tweaks it was delicious and I served it over rice. Also served tostones with this dish and they were a perfect accompaniment.
