It's not just another Jamaican dish, its savoury, it's the tasty Jamaican oxtail stew!
Although I always enjoyed the meal, as a child, I was always curious of this oxtail meal. In my mind I always said, "I have never seen an ox, so why should I have the tail"?
So one day I asked and was told that 'oxtail' is simply the culinary name for the tail of a beef animal. I also learnt that the ox is simply a castrated bull so that that was edifying.
Back to the meal...
Well, I have never prepared it, but my sister Neka, who is the best cook in the family, is the queen at this- and I dear say for many of our local dishes as well. She is the best!
When she cooks it not even the bones are spared, they are equally succulent. Of course that require much more cooking time or a pressure cooker.
Although relatively expensive here, it is still have by many Jamaicans, at least once per week.
By the way, the defining difference between our version and the way the rest of the world enjoys it is, again - the pimento (allspice)
I consulted my family members, did a little research and is now presenting to you the recipe.
Here's is it, give it a try nuh!
