epi, pls can you explain how you make the oxtail stew in details pls? I dont get the "season overnight" part . . . cant you just season the day you make the stew? and what can you serve it with?

Thanks

Oh sorry peace!
Re: Yours Mine and Ours: Cuisine by Epi: 1:52am On Mar 21, 2009
Yes, you can season the day you make the stew.  Season overnight is my preference.  WHY? better taste. (give the seasoning time to "sink" into the meat)  It's usually serve with rice & peas/plain rice but you can have it with bread, dumpling, yam whatever you want to eat it with.

Clean stove eh?. You know what they say about men with clean stove cheesy wink wink

anytime darling

@Moyola

Talk about putting me on the spot, right? I was hoping you forget because I always estimate when cooking certain things and rice is one of them.  Anyway, if this comes out “soppy” abeg, no embarrass me, jare grin grin grin.   You can get the basmatic wild rice from the health/indian stores

>**< For every cup of rice add 1 ½ cup of water

Rinse rice until the water is clear and not “cloudy”

Bring rice to boil at medium heat (Adding onion, sweet pepper and salt to taste) don’t cover pot

After the rice has been cooking for a few minutes, check for holes or crates (see pic)

Put the lid (pot cover) on tight (turn down heat to low)

Turn stove off when water dries out

>**< Add more water if necessary

Will post recipe when NL restore the modify button. This was a tough call for me because I don't eat Pigtail. I had to ask an Italian kid (10 years) to do the tasting (make sure it was salt enough) for me. I guess I did well because the lady that I catered for, gave me thumbs-up
