Another Brazilian food. My husband loves this. Ate it all the time on his mission.
1 lb yucca root, skin removed and sliced in to 2 - 3 inch cylinders
salt and pepper to taste
3 TBS unsalted butter
1. Place yucca into a saucepan and cover completely with water.
2. Bring to a boil over high heat then reduce to medium heat and simmer just until fork tender.
3. Drain water and then when cool enough to handle, split cylinders and removed fibrous root in the center of the yucca root.
4. Heat and saute pan over medium heat. Add butter to melt and saute cooked yucca just until golden. Season with salt to taste and pepper if desired.
