Ingredients

  • 4 lbs Rumba Meats Oxtail
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 - 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon adobo
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 medium red onion , chopped
  • 1 bell pepper , sliced
  • 1 carrot , cubed
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup olives

Instructions

  • In a large pot or caldero, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle oxtail with salt and pepper. Add meat to the pot and brown on all sides. Add water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 1 and a half hours, checking and adding more water as needed. 
  • When meat is tender, add adobo, oregano, crushed red pepper, garlic, onion, peppers, carrots, tomato sauce, and olives. Mix to combine. 
  • Let simmer until all vegetables become tender and flavors combine, about 10 to 15 minutes. 
  • Serve warm with white rice and avocado. 

Notes

  • Keep your eye on the water level when you are cooking the oxtail and add more if needed.
  • Adjust the heat level of this Dominican stew to your taste. Add a little more ore less red pepper flakes if you wish.
  • This traditional recipe works really well with these veggies, but you can also add in additional veggies if you wish, mushrooms would work well!
  • To cook in the slow cooker, add all ingredients to a slow cooker after browning the oxtail and cook for 8 hours on low or 4 and a half hours on high.
