Oxtail and Beans
2 lb (1 kg) oxtail, jointed 1/4 cup oil 5 cups water 2 tomatoes, chopped 2 onions, chopped 1 clove garlic, chopped 1 sprig thyme 3 slices hot pepper salt and black pepper 1/2 lb. cooked broad beans
Wash and dry the pieces of oxtail and brown them in oil. Add 4 cups of water, bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the oxtail is tender, adding more water if necessary. Reduce the sauce to a thick gravy by increasing the heat, then add the tomatoes, onions, garlic, thyme, hot pepper, salt and black pepper. Stir for a few minutes, then add the remaining water and the broad beans. Mix them in, lower the heat, cover again, and simmer for 10 minutes or until the water evaporates leaving a thick gravy. Serve with rice and peas. Enough for 4.
