Oxtail Miami Beach
Oxtail is the Caribbean culinary name for the tail of a cow. Oxtail is a gelatin-rich meat, which is usually slow-cooked as a stew or braised. Traditional preparations often involve hours of slow cooking but current methods utilize a pressure cooker. Caribbean and Jamaican cooking includes a mixture of techniques, flavors, spices and influences from the original indigenous people, British, Indian, African and Chinese. It is also influenced by the crops introduced into the island from around the world. Trinidadian cuisine includes various dishes from the different cultures brought to the island with the arrival of people from elsewhere. In addition to ingredients that are native to each Island, many foods have been introduced and are now grown locally.
