Special Equipment Needed

How to Peel Yuca

The thick skin of yuca should be peeled and the fibrous core that runs down the center should be removed before using.

Special Extra

Boost up the spice level by adding 1/2 tsp. each crushed red pepper and black pepper with the yuca.


Lamb makes a great substitute for the beef. Use trimmed lamb shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes.

Food Facts

Yuca is a root that ranges from 6 to 12 inches in length and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. This crunchy tuber has a tough brown skin and a crisp, white flesh. Originally, yuca is a native to South America and there are only 2 main categories: bitter & sweet. Yuca is used as a thickener in the making of tapioca and other dishes.


Simply prepare using thawed, frozen yuca for the fresh yuca.
