Ropa Vieja is a Latin American dish that is normally made with beef. There are all different versions out there so I recommend experimenting a bit until you find your favorite one. The common ingredients are always onion, peppers, and tomato. From there some people like to add olives or capers, cilantro might make an appearence, and I have even seen peas added. Personally, I love mine with green olives but since not everyone in my family is on board, I add them individually after. Consider serving it in the traditional manner with rice and beans or use cauliflower rice for a lighter version. It's also delicious for tacos, in wraps, or used in a tomato based soup.
