Serving for 4.

1 oxtail, about 2-2.5 lb, cut up
4 tablespoons cornflour
2 tablespoons cooking oil
salt and black pepper
4 rashers (slices) bacon (sugar cured, rindless)

4 carrots, pared and sliced
1 cup peeled chopped tomatoes
1 pint (16 fl. oz) hot water
2 stalks green onions, finely sliced
1 spring thyme
1 can butter beans (lima beans)

Trim away excess fat and place oxtail in boiling water for 2 to 3

Reviewer: Heath from San Francisco, CA
I tried this one and was really happy with it. The corn flour and beans make it unique. I had trouble finding lima beans when I made it, so I used navy beans and they were really good in it. Enjoy!
