Traditional Cuban ropa vieja is made with flank steak; however, to make this recipe suitable for the slow cooker (or pressure cooker), I am using rump roast instead, though any type of beef roast will work. The long cooking time and acids from the other ingredients create very tender meat. Serve ropa vieja with fried plantains and a cabbage slaw for a balanced, nourishing meal.

2 tablespoons avocado oil
2 medium red onions sliced
1 large red bell peppers sliced
1 large green bell pepper sliced
1 large yellow bell peppers sliced
2 serrano chili peppers finely diced
1 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoons dried oregano
1 tablespoons paprika
¼ teaspoons ground allspice
6 cloves garlic crushed
2 bay leaves
3 pounds beef rump roast
2 cups diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
2 cups beef bone broth
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 cups green olives
2 roasted red bell peppers thinly sliced
