This dish is rich in flavor due to the slow cooking of the oxtail. Oxtail can be cooked to tenderness a day before so you can skim off the fat making the dish more heart healthy. Using a pressure cooker will speed up cooking time, but will lose much of the flavor. Serve with rice and shrimp paste (bagoong).

Instructions Checklist

  • Skim as much fat from the top of the liquid as possible. Crumble the beef bouillon cubes into the liquid and allow to dissolve. Remove the meat from the broth and set aside. Add the bok choy, long beans, and eggplant to the broth and simmer until tender.

  • While the vegetables simmer in the broth, heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until tender. Stir the achiote powder into the mixture to add a little color. Add the peanut butter and stir until it's melted into the mixture. Add about half the broth to the pot; bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Add the oxtails and cook another 5 minutes before adding the remaining broth with the vegetables. Serve hot.

My family and I have eaten various recipes of this classically delicious Filipino dish. This one is just as tasty! I added tripe coriander hot pepper flakes and cardamon to this base for a little extra YUM! Read More

Looks like a good recipe only difference would be that i'd add 1 cup of Peanut Butter instead of just 3 tablespoons. I like the peanut butter taste. Read More

I made this with boneless short ribs instead and it turned out delicious! I also sauteed the eggplant green beans and (baby) bok choy with garlic before I put them into the stew. My Filipino hubby gave it 2 thumbs up! Read More
