Ropa Vieja is one of the national dishes of Cuba. It literally translates to “old clothes” because it resembles a heap of colorful cloths. This dish started as a shepherd's meal in the Middle Ages. It tastes even better the second day, so make a large batch ensuring you have enough for letfovers. There are many different ways to make this fabulous meal, this is my favorite. Simple and very tasty! Definitely a family favorite!
Adobo Lime is hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary. It is a wonderful addition to chicken, beef, pork, fish and veggies. Adobo or Adobar (which means marinade or sauce) traditionally is cooking raw food in a sauce to enhance its flavor, then served over rice. It has been used by the Spanish/Portuguese/South American cultures for centuries and is now main stream all over the world. Adobo can be used in a sauce or as a rub.
I served this with Baked Mexican Rice.
An ice cold Tecate beer is perfect with this dish.
