Step 3

This Recipe uses caramelized sugar to make growing caramel. You can also buy this at the store however if you don’t have the browning you can make your own by heat a tablespoon of sugar in oil over medium heat. Be careful not to burn.


Step 4

Add in Oxtail, and sear each piece on each side for approximately 2 minutes until each piece absorbs and retains the caramel colour.


Step 5

Pour 4 cups of boiling water in the same bowl with the Veggies that you seasoned the Oxtail and pour into the pot with the Oxtail. Cover and let cook for 1 hour. After 1 hour most of the water will evaporate so add 4 more cups of water and cook for another hour.
