Papaya stobá – Stew of unripe papaya

door Linda Terrizzi

Papaya stobá (sometimes written as stobá di papaya) is a traditional Antillean stew. You make it with unripe papaya that is stewed together with different meats.

Fruit and meat go very well together, especially when the fruit, as in this case, is not yet at its sweetest. You probably don't even realize you're eating fruit with this unripe papaya stew. The stewed green papaya tastes the most like vegetables. Together with meat, tomato and soy sauce, it is a delicious and complete dish.



It's best eaten with rice or funchi, and of course a few slices of fried banana.

Braised papaya or banana

Another classic stew in which we use fruit is, of course, the 'stobá di banana'. We use a plantain (not a regular banana, it would fall apart after cooking!) that is also not yet fully ripe. It tastes like potato after stewing. Isn't it different?
