Combining smoked oxtail and sweet potatoes in the slow cooker makes for a delicious,and surprisingly easy meal. The sweet potatoes cook down to help thicken the stew, while the oxtail lends a ton of wonderful smokiness. It's great served with cornbread!

I ended up adding smoked bbq turkey neck in with it but only because of a communication error lol. It is sweet but I don't mind that. My husband was not a huge fan but said it was ok. The kids were mixed. Overall though I would make it again. Maybe with more stew vegetables next time. Read More
