Fried Yucca (Cassava) Costa Rican Style

1 small yucca root (yuca) or 1 medium yucca root (yuca)
2 -3 tablespoons butter (1 knob)
salt, to taste


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.
