Slow Cooked Oxtail Stew


If you watched either my Facebook Live or Instagram Video two Saturdays ago then you would have seen that I was making Oxtail Stew in the Crock Pot – Slow Cooker Saturday.  However, if you missed them, here is the video that I uploaded to YouTube.



I had been wanting to make an Oxtail Stew for some time now but the cost was always prohibitive, however, when I saw them on sale at Shoprite I picked up 3 packs and threw them into the freezer. 


With the end of the season and heading into the holidays I try to clear out my freezer so I decided to use the Oxtails along with a few packages of Mixed Pepper Strips and Steamfresh Veggies.



    • 2-3 lbs of Oxtails
    • 1 – 28 oz can of tomatoes (any style)
    • 1/2 bag frozen mixed pepper strips
    • 1 packages Steamfresh veggies with carrots, beans, corn, and asparagus
    • 4 potatoes sliced
    • 1 – 32 oz of Organic Chicken or Beef Broth
    • 3 Bay Leaves
    • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
    • Grace Caribbean Traditions Oxtail Seasoning

  • Cover and cook on slow for 10 hours or high for 5 hours

Tastes wonderful served over rice or with Cornbread.

DISCLAIMER:  Most of you know that I dropped the entire pot of stew and ended up in the ER with 5 stitches on my pinky finger, however, since I had made Oxtail Stew in the past, I know how good it tastes.  Unfortunately, I was unable to take a hero shot before the Crockpot dropped, so the picture in the promo is courtesy of the Food Network.

  1. Good morning dear brave cooking Del. Thanks for this great recipe that I will try at home and for sacrificing yourself so much for your family and readers.Hey, tell your Hubby to take you out for dinner since you can’t handle the pots and pans with that uber-traumatized pinkie. Un baccione.

    1. Thank you, trust me he was just a disappointed as I was and graciously took me to the ER despite arriving home only a few minutes earlier after a meeting in Buffalo!

  2. I hope you’re all healed up now sis. I never had oxtails before, but the stew looks very yummy. And thanks for the ideas about cleaning out freezer before the end of the year, I need to do the same.


    1. Thank you, yes, stitches were removed and the finger is fine. A lot of people have never had Oxtails before, but they are very good and I hope to make a fresh batch before the end of the season. Have fun clearing out the freezer!
