Ropa Vieja

A literal translation of ropa vieja is “old clothes.” On menus in Cuban and other Latin-American restaurants it is shredded skirt steak, usually mixed with onions, peppers, and peas. Cha Cha Chicken of Santa Monica, California, turns it into Ropa nueva, made with pulled chicken rather than beef. It is served wrapped in a corn tortilla topped with mango and jerk sauce.
