When i was back home in Miami, there was a dish called "old clothes" in Spanish. Pronounced (rope - a -vey - ha).
It was shredded flank steak that had been braised until very tender. Then they cooked it again in what looked to be tomato sauce, olive oil, garlic and seasonings.
It was served over rice as well.
I liked it on Cuban bread with potato sticks and hot sauce as a sandwich.
I did not realize what i had back then.
Little Havana was a very cool place in those days.
