Oxtails Simmered With Beans - traditional Jamaican dish

Ingredients:
• 2 lb of oxtails
• 1 13.1-oz can of broad beans
• 5 cups water
• 1 onion
• 2 tomatoes
• 2 scallions
• 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
• 2 tsp Irie Oxtail Seasoning
• 1 tsp Irie Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce

Method:
Oxtails simmered with beans is a traditional Jamaican dish. The recipe can take between four and five hours to cook, but the result is well worth the wait. Oxtails contain 54 percent protein and one serving of broad beans contains 1 percent of the daily doses of vitamins A and C, and 7 percent and 14 percent of your daily calcium and iron, respectively. There are many recipes to choose from, but most are variations of this one.
Step 1
For every 2 lbs of Oxtail, season with 2 tsp Irie Oxtail Seasoning , 1 tsp Irie Scotch Bonnet Pepper sauce and scallion.
Step 2
Blanch the broad beans in boiling water for approximately 30 seconds. Put them in cold water to stop the cooking process. Their waxy coatings will slip off. Set the clean beans aside.
Step 3
Add one tbsp. of oil to a pan and fry the seasoned oxtails for about 10 minutes. Add the water and stir in the chopped , onion and tomatoes. Turn down the heat and simmer for about three hours. Stir occasionally.

Step 4
Once the oxtails are tender, add the beans. Simmer for another 30 minutes. Your Irie Jamaican-style oxtails with beans are ready.
Tips
• You can serve it with Jamaican rice and peas, just white rice, or potatoes.
• To make a richer gravy you can add ½ cup of Irie Oxtail Gravy. (Available at most Caribbean stores)
