About this recipe: This is a traditional Jamaican dish I was taught to cook by my grandmother.
This was so delicious!!! My family and I ate it all up, I didn't have all of the ingredients but I improvised and used red onions instead of white onions. I also added worcestshire sauce, will definitely be cooking his again!! - 19 Dec 2016
This is some authentic Jamaican Oxtail. The Slow cooker worked perfectly! I followed everything in this recipe except I washed the oxtail with vinager and lemon juice first and then rinsed clean. I also used a tsp of caramel browning when frying the oxtail at the beginning. I absolutley recommend this recipe my friends and family loved it! - 27 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
What Jamaicans call "broad beans" in actually large cooked butter beans. So this is what must be used if you want to be authentically Jamaican. Either have a cup of butter beans (large dried limas) you have previously soaked and cooked to use in this recipe or use a (15 oz.) can of large butter beans 1 tsp. of pimento berries is far too much, and will overpower the flavor of the entire dish! Try 1/2 tsp. instead. Lastly if you do not like peppery hot food, substitute 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper instead. - 27 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
