Directions

For the mojo: Stir together in a small bowl and let sit at room temperature while you prepare the hash, to allow flavors to meld.

For the yucca hash: Put the yucca, bay leaf and garlic in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 2 inches. Sprinkle the water with salt and pepper. Bring the water to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook the yucca until just tender, but not falling apart. Drain well in a colander, then transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet to drain again. Discard the garlic and bay leaf.

Heat a large cast-iron pan or griddle over medium-high heat. Add the oil and bacon and cook until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add the cumin and cook until soft, about 4
minutes. Add the yucca and cooked bacon season with salt and pepper. Cook the hash, pressing with a spatula, until the bottom is crisp and dark brown. Turn the yucca pieces and repeat pressing and browning until brown and crisp on all sides. Transfer to a platter and drizzle with the lime-cilantro mojo.

    One of the best breakfast treats for guests. The yucca was good, but the mojo made the dish!

    Absolutely delicious! This was my first time using yucca root and I was very pleasantly surprised. The lime-cilantro mojo was a great complement but had a lot left over so will likely marinade a skirt steak so as not to waste these delicious flavors.
