I got this recipe from the weightwatchers site today. Ropa Vieja used to be one of my favorite things on the menu at Bahama Breeze, but they no longer offer it, not that I've been...
anyway- I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to when DBF comes back home!

Core Recipe
Servings | 12
Preparation Time | 30 min
Cooking Time | 480 min
Level of Difficulty | Easy

main meals | The name for this vinegary meat stew literally means "old clothes," a reference to the way the beef shreds into strands in the rich sauce.


</I>
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika, mild-flavored, preferably smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • 3 pound raw lean flank steak, two 1 1/2-lb steaks, trimmed of any fat
  • 2 medium red onion(s), thinly sliced into rings
  • 2 large sweet red pepper(s), seeded, cored and chopped
  • 2 medium apple(s), peeled, cored and shredded through the holes of a box grater
  • 3 medium stalk celery, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium garlic clove(s), minced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, leaves, packed, chopped
Instructions
  • Whisk the broth, vinegar, cumin, paprika, salt, black pepper and cayenne in a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Submerge the meat, then add the onions, red peppers, apples, celery and garlic, making sure the vegetables are under, between, and over the steaks.
  • Cover and cook on low until the meat is fork-tender, about 8 hours.
  • Transfer the meat to a cutting board; set aside for 10 minutes. Shred the meat with two forks, pulling it into strands along the grain. Return to the slow cooker; stir in cilantro. Set the slow cooker on warm and serve within 4 hours. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.

I have tried the weight watchers Ropa Vieja recipe and I loved it. I made a few changes though. I didn't shred the meat, I just cut it in serving size pieces, I used regular paprika and I chopped up the apple very fine. I also didn't add the cilantro. It was great. I served it over mashed potatos with the sauce over the potatos. Yummy!
