Latin Beef Stew with Pumpkin, Yuca and Plantains

Sancocho is a Latin American stew that is usually served at special occasions, holidays and weekends. While each country has its own take, the recipe typically consists of hearty meats and tropical vegetables like yuca and plantains, simmered in a savory, seasoned stock. Smoked paprika and ham hocks give it a distinctive smoky flavor.
