Cooking the stew
Heat up oil in a sauce pan, add the chopped onions and crushed garlic, sauté till onions looks transluscent
Add the blended roasted peppers, curry powder and thyme. Then stir fry for about 2 mins
Add the meat stock, stir well. Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
Lower the heat and bring to boil. When the stew begins to boil, dump in the cooked oxtail.
Stir and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes on low heat. This allows the oxtail absorb the flavor of the stew Please do not leave unattended. It would burn.
Finally toss in the chopped green peppers, stir and turn off heat. Allow to cool a bit
Serve warm with Rice, boiled yam, Plantains, beans.. Your choice.?
