Sancocho is a Dominican stew traditionally prepared with different meats and root vegetables. It is traditionally made for special occasions or on rainy days. Sancocho, a term derived from the Spanish verb sancochar “to par boil” is a traditional soup with variations in several Latin American countries. It is said that the soup was influenced by the Spanish stew cocido which translates to “cooked”. Enslaved Africans that were transported to the Dominican Republic made their own version of this dish using table scraps and anything that was available to them.
