  • Summary

    I’m excited for you to try this robust shredded beef dish, which literally translates to “old clothes” or “old, shredded clothes.” Pressure cooking a 1 1/2-pound (680-g) flank steak makes shredding this lean meat really easy. The red wine makes the sauce very round but I’ve also used white cooking wine, defying classical pairing trends, and it works just as lovely. That’s the beauty of making food your own. There’s nothing else like this classic Cuban recipe. President Obama enjoyed this very dish during his historical visit to Havana in spring 2016. We traditionally eat this rice with black bean rice (Moros y Cristianos), but the sauce is also lovely over vegetables, or any rice.
