This slow cooker oxtail stew is a real treat. It is rich and extra flavorful soup filled with hearty vegetables and beans, fall-apart succulent beef pieces and aromatic Caribbean inspired spices. And making oxtail soup in a slow cooker is a no-brainer, it basically cooks itself.

The hardest part will be waiting for the oxtails to be ready. Because you will not get instant result, it literally takes hours and hours of simmering. You have to remove the foam during boiling.

Oxtail is a culinary name for the beef tail. And that is what we are going to use in this recipe.
Because of the extra fat, gelatin and collagen oxtails produce an incredibly rich stock or stew and the meat, when stewed, has a better texture than most beef.
One of the best things in this ox tail soup recipe is the broth. It is luxuriously rich! The bones and all the connective tissues in the cow tails give this soup an extraordinary depth of beefy flavor. It is just divine. You just have to try it.
I like to sear my oxtails before throwing them into the slow cooker. The browning of the meat gives a wonderful caramelization that really kicks up the flavors of the finished stew.
A hint of curry, that what makes this soup for me. Just a touch really deepens the flavor. The unique combination of sweet and savory spices gives the soup its rich earthy flavor with a hint of brightness. It works beautifully with beef flavors.
I also recommend trimming your oxtails of excess fat before cooking them. If when finished you feel like the stew is still a little bit oily just skim the extra fat with spoon from the top of the stew.
Serve the stew with the crispy baguette to guarantee comfort while soaking in all the mouthwatering luscious juices. This fantastic beef oxtail soup recipe is also good with cream of mushroom and it a great way to be adventurous and try something new and delicious. Don’t forget to cool a little so that don’t burn your mouth.
