Paleo Ropa Vieja Recipe

Paleo Ropa Vieja Recipe

Everything is so much easier in the slow cooker.  So, I decided to try making ropa vieja in the slow cooker too!  In fact, it’s so easy I’ve already made this dish several times over the past few weeks.  I usually get around 3lb of flank steak.  I cut the steak into 2 inch slices (cut across the grain).  Then pan sear the strips on a high heat in a tablespoon of coconut oil.  Sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side.  This just locks in some of those delicious juices.
