Crockpot Monday: Ropa Vieja

Ropa Vieja:


3 lbs meat – whatever you can find on sale is perfect!
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 large red onion, chopped
2 red bell peppers, chopped
2 med yellow apples, grated
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 cloves smashed and chopped garlic
1/2 cup cilantro leaves


Combine all of the dry spices in a bowl. Rub the spices all over the meat you are using. Put the meat into your crockpot. Dump any extra spice on top.

Coarsely chop the vegetables and add to the pot. Smash the garlic, remove the leaves off the cilantro stems, and add. Peel the apples, and grate them into the pot with a cheese grater. Add the chicken broth and vinegar.

Cover and cook on low for at least 10 hours and at least 7 hours on high, checking about 2 hours before serving to see if you can shred the meat with forks. If you can't shred the meat, cook for longer, or remove the meat and cut in long slices, then return to the pot.

Serve over brown or white rice, with a ladle full of broth.
