Spicy Oxtail Stew in Tomato Sauce (Crock Pot)
A slow cooked tender stew


Pre- heat crock pot while waiting for the dish to be ready.

In a heated  deep bottom pan, fry chilli,  add onion, fry till it\'s done, add garlic, fry for about 1 minute. Add oxtail and stir until the colour changes. 

Add chopped tomatoes tomato paste, cinnamon stick, cumin, carrots and corn kernel. Add water if you want a thinner consistency, otherwise the tomatoes and oxtail releases it\'s own liquid and that will be enough to cook the meat under medium heat in a crock pot.

After cooking for 4 hours, the meat will be really tender,  pour in white wine, bring to a boil by setting crock pot to a high temperature. Any excess oil or will form on top of the crock pot, where you can get skim it with a ladle. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
