Vaca Frita (or crispy shredded beef) is a classic Cuban recipe made with flank steak that’s boiled then shredded, marinated in garlic and citrus, and pan-fried to perfection.
Vaca frita translates to “fried cow”. This delicious dish originated from Cuba. The idea is you soften the meat by boiling it low and slow until you can shred it with two forks. You then marinate and pan fry it to perfection.
