Oxtails are one of the dishes our entire family loves to eat. We typically eat oxtails in a gravy over rice. A simple preparation but it is such a delicious fulfilling dish. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

I decided to try something different with my oxtails, Caribbean Oxtails. I’ve never cooked it this way, but I was excited to try it.
