I had never heard of Cuban ropa vieja, but decided to make this recipe for my wife because she loves Latin-Caribbean cuisine. I like the way this turned out, it had a lot of good flavor. My wife was really happy with it too!

This ropa vieja is superb! The flavor is incredible, thanks to the peppers, cumin, and wine. I can't wait to make this recipe again. Perfect for tacos or with rice and beans.

Delicious flank steak. The meat wasn't too tough, and had a lot of good flavor. Also goes great over rice.
