Ropa vieja #2

Published originally in lareira.net by Marta on 25/12/2001

The Ropa vieja is, basically, the use of the meat that is left over from the stew. Today I present to you a very tasty and simple recipe that my mother made when I was a little girl. It consists, simply, in crumbling the meats, which can be pork shoulder, rib, chorizo, tail, veal, chicken … Then, we fry some potatoes and serve it all together with tomato sauce, which can be natural or canned. If there are also left over cooked potatoes, they can be chopped and fry lightly instead of making new chips. I guarantee that it is delicious. Here you have a link to another recipe of Ropa vieja
