This is just a family recipe that I have changed slightly, the flavours are stronger. It is a simple dish with just simple ingredients but you will need a large pot to fit all the ingredients (can be a 1 pot dish if you wish). This dish is an overnight dish. Leaving it overnight in the fridge allows the excess oil/fat from oxtail to float to the top, therefore easily removing them.
Just tried the recipe, AWESOME!!!! Great tip putting dish overnight in fridge, because there was a large layer of white creamy oil on top, and skimmed it off and it was perfect, would definitely try again. - 16 Oct 2009
