Yucca Fries

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Servings: 3-5
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

1 lb of yucca
3 cups of oil
Salt (to taste)

TIP: If yucca is cold, place them in a bowl with tap hot water for a few minutes. Peels comes off easier

Remove bark from yucca with a knife. Cut in half and remove the thick fiber found in the center of the yucca.

Cut the yucca in chunks, Julienne style or strips

In a pot, add water, enough to cover yucca and boil until tender. Remove from pot and remove excessive water. Make sure yucca is dry to prevent oil splatter

In a deep skillet or pot, heat oil and fry the yucca until light golden

Place yucca on paper towels to drain the excess oil

Serve with garlic mojito, churrasco, fried chicken, fried steak honey mustard or ketchup
