Cuban Style Pork Stew

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by HomeSchoolCook

Very tasty combination of hot and sweet. If plantains are not available, a large just-ripe banana is a good substitute.

This was a real hit for dinner. Everyone thought the combination of the plantains, yams along with the pork and cumin made for a savory, but not too spicy mixture. I added extra broth, and increased the spices accordingly. Also I added about 3 cups of rice, instead of serving it separately. This is definitely a keeper - thanks!
