Ropa Vieja, which translates to “old clothes,” is one of the quintessential dishes in Cuban cuisine. The recipe takes shredded steak and converts it into a hearty stew, packed with tomatoes and plenty of veggies.
More on the savory side than spicy, it’s best enjoyed with starchy accompaniments like rice, beans, plantains – or even French fries.
Tastebuds Catering, a Latin American food truck out of Orlando, is opting for the latter of those options in a brunch dish inspired by ropa vieja.
Tastebuds’ take involves loading garlic shoestring fries up with cheddar cheese, a helping of ropa vieja, and a fried egg to tie the whole dish together.
These Loaded Ropa Vieja Fries debuted at Foodbeast’s Brunchfest, presented by Hubert’s Lemonade at Playlist Live in Orlando.
