    Manami's Note:

    This is a really a different take on the Cuban dish ropa vieja - a stew of shredded beef. Here we have taken poetic license - added hot chiles, black beans, & Pepper Jack Biscuits, to name a few. I hope I can do this dish, usually made from leftover beef, justice by taking it yet another step! BTW for those of you who don't know, ropa vieja means old clothes. When they used to make it - they put the beef in soup and when they were finished with the soup - they took the beef and with two forks pulled it apart and then made this dish. Loosely based on CuisineAtHome, Issue 71 - October 2008 edition.

      Loved all the meld of flavors. Made half a recipe using rib steak, does take awhile to make but is excellent and very filling. DH didn't care for the beans but will just use less next time.
