This dish is rich in flavor due to the slow cooking of the oxtail. Oxtail can be cooked to tenderness a day before so you can skim off the fat making the dish more heart healthy. Using a pressure cooker will speed up cooking time, but will lose much of the flavor. Serve with rice and shrimp paste (bagoong).
Oven-Braised Chicken Stew
With the convenience of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, you can have your dinner cooked in right about an hour, start to finish! Starting on the stovetop and moving to the oven allows double-duty for the oven, so you can bake bread for dinner at the same time.

West African Peanut Stew
A hearty stew that’s super-easy to make and great for peanut butter lovers. Can be made vegetarian or with chicken. In a pinch, feel free to use vegetable or corn oil for peanut oil, powdered ginger for fresh, water for stock, etc. Kale works well in place of collard greens.
