Jerk Chicken & Oxtail
Jerk chicken is named after a style of cooking that has been popular in Jamaica for many years.
During the process of making the chicken, meat is rubbed with a spice known as Jamaican jerk spice. It is used on both chicken and pork dishes. Ingredients include nutmeg, salt, thyme, salt, cloves, and cinnamon
The result is a hot, spicy mixture. In fact, one of the traditional ingredients in jerk spice is Scotch bonnet peppers. These peppers are considered among the hottest in the world. Common side dishes include rice, plantains, carrots and green beans.
Cooked to Perfection
Oxtail is literally what the name implies, the tail part of cattle. Oxtail, a bony, gelatin-rich meat, is usually prepared in stew that is slowly cooked to perfection. It can also be used as a stock base for many other soups. We take the time to prepare oxtail soup in the traditional way.
You won’t find any microwave shortcuts in the preparation process. Stewed oxtail is usually served with butter beans, or it can be the main dish. It’s the traditional cooking method that really gives oxtail its unique flavor. Go ahead, sample a nice bowl of oxtail soup for yourself.
