DIRECTIONS

  • Skin the yuca using a potato peeler or a knife.
  • Cut the yuca into 2-3 inch chunks and then cut those chunks in half.
  • Boil the yuca until it is just soft enough to poke with a fork. Don't over boil or let it sit in the hot water or it will become to soft and wont fry.
  • There is a very indigestible stringy part in the middle, be sure to take that out if its visible.
  • Cut the half chunks into smaller fry-shaped pieces.
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the yuca and fry on medium or medium-low heat, turning occasionally until they are browned to your liking.
  • Add salt and dip in ketchup.
