Ropa Vieja (Cuban-Style Shredded Flank Steak)

Campbell's Ropa Vieja (Cuban-Style Shredded Flank Steak) Recipe

The name Ropa Vieja translates as "old clothes", but the flavor is fresher and lighter than a regular old stew.  Using the convenience of a slow cooker, Ropa Vieja is a great make-ahead dish, especially on those days when you are overloaded with household chores...or laundry!
