Southwestern Pork and Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes mitigate this braise's spicy heat, brought on by the combination of a pickled jalapeño's sour spiciness and the more complex heat of ancho chile powder.
This Cuban stew is made by braising beef until it can be shredded―thus the name (translated as "old clothes"). Serve with tortillas, and pass hot sauce on the side for those who like it fiery. Because the meat is shredded, it's also suitable for tacos and burritos.
