Yields5 Servings

 2 ½ pounds of oxtail
 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
 1 tbsp soy sauce
 1 tbsp salt
 1 tbsp garlic and herb spices
 1 tbsp sugar
 1 tsp Grace browning sauce
 ¼ tsp paprika
 ¼ tsp pepper
 ¼ tsp cayenne pepper

 1 bunch of thyme
 1 sprig rosemary
 1 bay leaf
 2 tbsp butter

1

How to Prepare:

Step 1: Take a shallow baking dish, and add the oxtail first.
Step 2: Mix up Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, salt, garlic and herb seasoning, browning sauce, sugar, paprika and both types of pepper to create a sauce. Rub the oxtail with the sauce and remove any excess from the dish.
Step 3: Place a large pan over a high heat and sear the outside of the oxtail in vegetable oil until it changes color to a golden brown hue. This should take around three minutes. Then, take your oxtail out and place it on a plate.
Step 4: In the same pan, saute your carrots, garlic, celery and onion until they begin to go soft. It’ll take around five minutes. Once they’re softened, start to add your beef broth, thyme, rosemary and bay leaf. Bring the mixture up to the boil and then, as soon as it’s boiling, you can add your oxtail.
Step 5: Reduce the heat on your pan and cover. Then simmer at a low heat until the oxtail is completely tender and falls apart. This will take around three hours. It’s worth the wait!
Step 6: Once the oxtail is tender and succulent, you can remove the lid and increase the heat. Stir the mixture from time to time and wait for the sauce to thicken. It’ll only take five minutes or so.
Step 7: Your authentic Jamaican oxtail is now ready to serve! You can serve this dish as it is, for a comforting stew, or accompany it with typical Jamaican sides like rice and peas or baked plantain.
