Our go-to recipe when we are having last minute company over and need to feed several hungry mouths. The simple preparation makes it one of the best to accentuate the succulent flavors of any cut from the beef short plate. Serve with some mashed potatoes or egg noddles and a bitter green.
This is one of our favorite techniques we learned from a Manhattan steakhouse and its perfect for getting an evenly cooked steak all the way through from top to bottom. The slow cook keeps it extra juicy and also creates a mahogany sear. Think stripes of char and red rather than a bullseye. Also, great for cooking lots of steaks at different internal temperatures and finishing them all at the same time.
Cuban for "Old Clothes", this classic stew recipe got its name from a peasant who was down on his luck and decided to use the clothes off his back to make dinner for his family. The story goes that because of his dedication to his family, God turned his Ropa Vieja into a delicious pulled beef stew!
