This Jamaican oxtails recipe falls off the bone and is packed with amazing flavor. It can be made in about an hour using a pressure cooker or cooked over a low, slow heat in a slow cooker.
If you ever asked me what my favorite Jamaican dish was, I would probably say oxtail. It’s a recipe that Mom will make for special occasions. I wish we could have it weekly but oxtail can be very pricey. So one has become a special Sunday dinner or a “Let’s Celebrate Something” dinner.
