COOK TIME
7 Hr

The classic Cuban ropa vieja is a savory slow-cooked beef dish that's shredded, just like its literal translation, old clothes. And because it's so easy to transport, we're betting these zesty flavors will make Cuban Shredded Beef one of your most requested slow cooker potluck recipes!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 (2-1/2- to 3-pound) bottom round roast
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a slow cooker (3-1/2 quarts or larger), combine bell pepper, onion, and garlic; place roast on top of vegetables.
     
  2. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, and black pepper; mix well and pour over roast. Cover and cook on high setting 7 to 8 hours, or until meat pulls apart with a fork.
     
  3. Turn off slow cooker and shred beef by pulling it apart with 2 forks. Stir beef mixture and allow to sit 5 minutes.

Mr. Food!! What is under the Cuban Shredded Beef, Potatoes. Rice, Veggie not nice to show us a picture and not tell us :)

I cooked today, really tasty. The next time I need to add two can of tomato sauce, it was a little dry once I took the meat apart. I recommend to take some of the sauce and put it aside that way you can added up in your plate later.

Watch you everyday can't wait to cook your Cuban beef. LOOK OOOOH SOOO Good!!! My husband gets all excited about your recipes. Thanks for being such a great cook. Thanks LINDA IN SEYMOURE, TEXAS

Hi Tania, I've made this recipe at least 5 times and it's never burned. I usually set my crock put on high for 7 hours. I absolutely do not put any water in the pot. I follow the recipe as is and have never gotten anything but delicious tender cooked meat. I hope that helps. It could be the type of slow cooker pot you are using that is causing it to burn. I have a thick ceramic pot and the steam cooks the meat.

I have never heard of one cooking a roast in the slowcooker without water.....did it burn? Im currently cooking this and it was getting black on the edges so I added water it was just strange to me ..... let me know please

I cook beef roast all the time in the slow-cooked and don't use water add more tomato sauce if it look dry of course I have always add a little red or white wine when I'm cooking :)

I was wondering what the beef is on top of in the picture.

This recipe deserves an award! Great work Mr. Food! I followed this recipe to the T. Did not deviate and it was so tasty, juicy and tender. If you have a slow cooker you absolutely have to try this. We served it with tortillas, Mexican rice and canned black beans. So good!
