I love braised oxtails with butter beans. Because I rarely eat red meat anymore, I don’t eat nearly as much of it as I used to but I still very much appreciate a plateful of sweet, succulent, well-cooked braised oxtail with Rice & Peas. In the Caribbean oxtail is used to prepare soups or stewed and served with other side items. In Jamaica we marinate the meat with aromatics like garlic and scallions and allspice. The meat is then braised before being cooked until it’s ready to fall from the bones. There are many other ways to prepare oxtails but my absolute favorite is the Jamaican way. The recipe below provides simple, easy steps for preparing Jamaican style braised oxtails using 3 different cooking methods. Whichever way you choose the result will be equally delicious.
