    breezermom's Note:

    Yams or sweet potatoes and other tropical root vegetables distinguish this stew from others. Though this recipe calls for beef, boneless pork is also authentic. Sancocho is often accompanied by "casabe" (cassava cakes), yucca meal cakes, or "panecicos" (yucca meal rolls). Corn bread is a good substitute for these. This recipe is from Panama, and comes from Better Homes and Gardens. Our family really enjoyed this.

      I never cook meat but decided for ZWT 7 to give this a go. I used diced beef. I have never seen a plantain in Australia so could not use it and used broccoli as a sub for green beans. I did enjoy it immensely. The meat component was a little dry but that may well be the fault of the "vegetarian" cook. The overall result though was really tasty.
