What is Yaroa?

Yaroa is a dish made primarily with the mash of a root vegetable or tuber, usually plantain or yucca. The mash, slightly salted, dense and chewy is layered with lines of richly seasoned strips of pork, chicken or beef – or you can opt for all three meats. The entire dish is then topped with a hearty topping of melted mozzarella cheese. Think of it is a mini-casserole, or even a Caribbean lasagna.
