Recipe of the Week!

Ropa Vieja
This ropa vieja recipe was very simple and made tons of leftovers. As you can see I served with roasted brussel sprouts (recipe here). The ropa vieja was good, but a little on the tomato-y side. I would probably cut the amount of crushed tomatoes, or eliminate the ketchup when making it again. 

1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced (with seeds)
Kosher salt
1 1/2 pounds skirt steak or flank steak
2 bell peppers (1 red, 1 green), sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 small onion, thinly sliced
Cooked white rice, for serving

Combine the tomatoes, ketchup, vinegar, garlic, cumin, jalapeno and 3/4 teaspoon salt in crock pot. Add the steak, bell peppers and onion and toss to coat. Cover and cook on low, undisturbed, 8 hours.

After cook time...coarsely shred the meat with 2 forks, and serve over rice.
