• 3 lbs yucca
  • Salt to taste
  • Filling:
  • 1 lb ground meat (iguana, beef, pork)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 3 or 4 capers


To make filling: Season ground meat with salt, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, capers, onion, sugar, garlic and parsley. Brown in very small amount of hot oil and add tomato paste. Simmer until quite dry.

Boil yucca with salt but do not allow to get too soft. Grind with fine blade in grinder and knead with salt.

Form balls, flatten in the palm of the hand and fill with stuffing forming into an oval shape. Pinch to close ends. Fry in very hot oil until golden.

If you want to freeze the carimanolas, dust with a little flour after they are formed and place on a cookie sheet in the freezer until firm and then place in sealed ziplock bags. To fry, take from freezer to hot oil at one time as they may fall apart. Do one or two at a time only.
