Anthony Bourdain, Meet Petrona

My host mom prepared a traditional Nicaraguan dish called Baho last weekend.  Here’s what you’ll need to recreate its awesomeness:

  • Platano leaves
  • Guayavo leaves
  • Yucca
  • Platano maduros
  • Beef
  • Tomato
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Peppers

STEP 1: Collect some big-ass leaves (de platano).

STEP 2: Put said leaves in a pot, add platanos and yucca.

STEP 3: Add stuff.

STEP 4: It should look like this:

STEP 5: Cover it up.

STEP 6: Cook over fire for three hours.

STEP 7: Serve.

STEP 8: Eat with ensalada de repollo (kind of like coleslaw, but with normal salad dressing).

She also makes ice cream-in-a-bag, but I’ll leave that for another entry.  Till next time, buen provecho!
