Ropa Vieja with Fried Plantains

Loosely translated as "old clothes," ropa vieja is among Cuba's most-loved dishes, not only because it is a simple and tasty way to feed a crowd. The cooked meat can be sliced, but it is most often shredded, giving the dish its name, before being added to a colorful sofrito made with tomato and red annatto oil, which is available at some Latin markets. If you use the annatto oil, omit the achiote paste.

I absolutely love this recipe! It's delicious. I usually use it as a filling for burritos or tacos. I sometimes use beef chuck pot roast, which retains the juiciness of the meat. I love the flavor of the capers. It's an unusual dish, but if you like Latin flavors , you will like this recipe. Very Cuban. It's become a staple in my home. And it makes great leftovers.
Pros: Adaptable, Will Make Again
