It's a Spanish/Caribbean dish called Ropa Vieja (old clothes). When it's done well it is one of my favorite things to order at a good Spanish restaurant. Basically, it is a shredded braised beef dish with onions, peppers and spices that is usually served over saffron rice. The shreds of beef, onion and pepper might remind someone of shredded up old rags, or so the story goes. Or the name could come from the original recipe which called for leftover beef. I dunno and I don't care. It's delicious!
My mouth is watering just thinking about it right now. And that picture doesn't do it justice.
I found a decent recipe for it on Epicurious and I want to give it a go. I'll let you know how it all turns out on Monday.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. It's interesting to know what I'm eating, isn't it?
