  1. Fill a large saucepan with water, and drop in the oxtail pieces, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 2 hours over medium-low heat, skimming the foam occasionally, until the oxtail meat is very tender and the broth is reduced to 3 cups.
  2. Stir in the eggplant, bok choy, and green beans, and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Just before serving, place the peanut butter in a small bowl and thin with 1 or 2 tablespoons of broth. Stir until smooth and add to the stew.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Note
  • Oxtails produce a lot of fat as they cook; strain off excess grease from the stew before serving.

This is basically how I make mine. It's one of my favorite filipino dishes. And it can be served with a dollop of shrimp paste. For coloring, you can add achuete to the sauce.

Delicious! I was skeptical about the peanut butter but it was absolutely wonderful. Will definitely make this again and again!

Made this for my Filipino husband. He said it was exactly right. Very authentic. Thanks for the recipe!
