Ropa Veija Slow-Cooker

1 lb flank steak
1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
1 green pepper
1 15oz jar of tomato sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vino seco (white wine in the latino section of grocery store, white wine will suffice)
1 can pimentos.

Chop onion and green pepper. Add all ingredients to crock pot. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with yellow rice and plantains.

This is a new recipe for us. It was very good. I think I will use a pot roast instead of flank steak (personal choice). the flank steak did come out tender. I used a bag of frozen plantains and baked then in the oven for 20 minutes. They were so good.

Ropa vieja, which is Spanish for "Old Clothes," is a popular dish of the Canary Islands, Cadiz, Greater Miami and the Caribbean, especially Cuba, Panama, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic
