  2. Meanwhile, place the olive oil, onion, garlic, and lemon juice into a pan. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes. Pour the hot olive oil mixture over the yucca, and serve immediately.

Its o.k. In Puerto Rico we would add to that sauces sugar, fresh orange juice, cilantro, black pepper, fresh lime juice, butter and vinegar.

I followed the recipe as indicated but I would say you have to cook the yucca for more than 15 mins because mine was still hard.
