One of the joys of growing up in New York for me was the exposure to so many cultures.  My parents quickly took a liking to Caribbean food.  Oxtail stew is a dish that we ate pretty often.  This is a recipe where people certainly differ.  My measurements not mandatory.  You will need a large pot.

Ingredients

  • 2lbs or  packages oxtails
  • 2 large white potatoes
  • 3 carrot sticks
  • 1 Vidalia onion minced
  • Garlic, salt and pepper to taste
  • splash of olive oil

Directions

Many recipes call for browning the meat first.  I simply don’t do because I didn’t growing up eating it that way. It is probably a nice touch. Fill pot to slightly beyond half full.  Add the ingredients.  This essentially a stew that you let simmer until it thickens.
