This is a fantastically tasty side dish that you can serve with Cuban or Latin American mains. It is made with yucca, or cassava, a tuber similar to the potato.
Yucca, also called cassava, is a tuber used much like a potato. You can find cassava root in Asian, African or Caribbean shops.
Its o.k. In Puerto Rico we would add to that sauces sugar, fresh orange juice, cilantro, black pepper, fresh lime juice, butter and vinegar. - 15 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I followed the recipe as indicated but I would say you have to cook the yucca for more than 15 mins because mine was still hard. - 27 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
You must always boil yucca for at least 25 minutes! 15 minutes just doesn't cut it unless you slice it so thin it falls apart. This is a wonderful recipe other than the mis-calculated cooking time, however. - 10 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
