Posts Tagged ‘Columbian’

Living in Houston one can come into contact with many different nationalities, Columbian being one of them. The Columbian people area proud people and rightfully so. They have some of the best food in the World. Today, I decided to cook the Columbian Stew known as Sancocho. You can make it with different meats, so I chose pork. This stew has the following vegetables,roots, and spices:

Yucca Root, Guineo-Banana, Potato, Auyuma-Pumpkin squash, tomato, onions, garlic, paprika, cilantro(coriander), and salt.

I love the exotic non-native mixture. These roots and vegetables are something that you will not find in many parts of the United States.

I varied the recipe a bit, but the basic recipe I used is located here:
