Pulled Pork Ropa Vieja

I make a Rope Vieja from time to time, sometimes even smoking the beef a little prior to slow cooking... I had about 5-6 lbs of leftover pulled pork, and had enough sandwiched and tacos this week, so I thought I would try to use my Ropa Vieja recipe with the pulled pork. Really good decision... Turned out really good. Thought I would share in case anyone wanted to give it a go. I used a Crockpot, but any pot would do. Just need to stew it long enough to heat it through... 

Pulled Pork Ropa Vieja

  • 2 pounds pulled pork
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 packet Savon Sin Achiote

Add everything to the Crockpot and heat on high for about an hour, then change to Low for another 30 minutes (or longer).

    It looks and sounds like a winner my friend. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 

    Just a man with a Muhle.
