  2. Yuca, also called cassava, is a tuber that's popular in Latin American and African cooking.
  3. Place yuca slices in large saucepan and add enough cold water to cover. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until yuca is tender but still a little firm, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, cut yuca into 1/4-inch-wide strips, discarding any woody cores.
  4. In large skillet, heat 2 inches of oil to 360 degrees (or use a deep-fat fryer). Cook yuca pieces in batches, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
