it does coz of the tapioca thickener. But the real way is slow cooking and has a bit more sugar. It will thicken as the sugar cooks. But you can also use tapioca thickener or cornstarch. Which ever suits you

I'm curious about the quantity of stew this recipe makes. You don't suggest a number of servings for the amounts you have listed.

Many ham hocks are fairly small and don't have much meat on them. Do you really use only one? Four plantains also aren't a whole lot, if this is a main dish.
