    I am a Jamaican and this is my favorite meat to cook! I season meat over night after washing throughly and draining.I use allspice, thyme oxtail seasoning lots of garlic ,Jamaican browning, pimento, rosemary. I sometimes brown the meat or I may just put in a crock pot for a couple hours or until
    Meat is tender then transfer into a Dutch pot, then add ingredients to taste. Simmer for 45 minutes. last but not least add butter beans , serve on a bed of brow or white rice. ( p s I make sure there are no oil or grease on the meat ). I do appreciate and like your way of. Cooking the oxtail too , I am sure it taste super good . Good luck with your cooking
