Oxtail In A Pressure Cooker - Creative Monday Blog Hop

        Before I share my recipe today I want to say Heartiest Congratulations to my blogger friend and the co-host of this hop, Clairejustine, for running the London marathon. Go Claire!  Go Claire!  I wonder if I should now take up running!:)  I am from Jamaica and we have so many good athletes.
        Now on to my  recipe. Every now and then I like to enjoy a meal that includes oxtail.  One of my favourite meals is oxtail with rice and peas, crushed Irish Potatoes, vegetable salad and fried ripe plantains. This is how it is prepared at my home.


Ingredients

1 onion
stalk of escallion
2 cloves of garlic

2 tablespoons of tomato ketcup
some grains of pimento
black pepper

Method
1. Season oxtail with onion, escallion, salt and blackpepper.
2. Place oxtail in a pressure cooker.
3. Add water to cover oxtail fully.
4. Add pimento, butter and tomato ketchup
5. Cook for 1 hour.
6.  Add more water and cook for another hour or until tender

Hi Judy!! I have to say I have no idea what oxtail is, or what it tastes like, although your photo does make it look yummy:)

Thanks for hosting!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Oxtail and cow tail are one and the same Paula. I think many persons have never had this. Take care and have a good week.

Now, Judy, I am drooling all over this picture. Monday is my meatless day. But, you are about to cause me to get up, got to the store, buy some oxtails and cook them in my crock pot so that I can enjoy them on Tuesday. I am not a big meat-eater, but I sure enjoy some slow-cooked oxtails. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I see that you like oxtail Victory! I look forward to seeing your meatless post today. It is good to have meatless meals.

I hope you had a great weekend, Judy! I'm sure the weather is gorgeous in Jamaica. We are in the 50s today. Our weather can't decide what it wants to do. Lol.

A question...Are we talking about real oxtail? If so, oh my :0 I have never eaten an oxtail. What does it taste like? Does it have bones? Thanks for sharing and hosting Judy :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Yes Diane, it is real oxtail and has bones. It tastes quite nice and has a lot of flavour. Take care and have a good day.

Sharon Hodge said...

Love, love, love oxtail. My husband is an island man and enjoys oxtail. I've tried my hand at a couple of times. I don't make it a lot because it is so time-consuming when I make it! I've started buying frozen plantains because mines never come out right. But, the oxtails are fabulous! Might I say that yours looks so scrumptious! So scrumptious!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Sharon! I really love oxtail and plantains. Have a good day.

Jackie Kocurek said...
