Jamaican Ox-tail Stew

Jamaican Ox-tail Stew

Introduction

On a mission trip to Jamaica, I learned this recipe from sticking my head in and asking the cook questions about what she was cooking. I was graciously welcomed into her kitchen and given a seat to listen and watch.

Note- this is an all day stew to make the house smell wonderful.
