A quintessentially Cuban dish, ropa vieja is the epitome of meaty, rib-stickin’ down-home goodness, and every Latin home cook seems to have their own version. The name means “old clothes,” and it refers to how the meat, peppers, and onions resemble a multicolored pile of rags. The pressure cooker makes it possible to make this traditionally long-simmered dish on a weeknight: it expedites the cooking and makes the meat tender and the whole dish deeply flavorful. This recipe is excerpted from the cookbook The Latin Road Home by Jose Garces.
