I love dis­cov­er­ing new foods that, maybe just a few years ago, I would have nev­er tried!  The crock is the absolute per­fect com­pan­ion to this recipe for Slow Cook­er Paleo Island Oxtail.  Make a stop at your local butch­er for this fla­vor­ful and rich cut of beef.

  1. Heat coconut oil or but­ter in a large skil­let (cast iron prefer­ably) over medi­um-high heat.
  2. Sea­son the oxtails with sea salt and pep­per.
  3. Brown on all sides, about 3–4 min­utes each side and place in crock.
  4. Add the diced onions, car­rots, mush­rooms, and jalapeño to same skil­let.
  5. Cook over medi­um heat for 4–5 min­utes, or until the onion is translu­cent.
  6. De-glaze the pan by adding the beef stock to skil­let, then gar­lic, toma­to paste, all­spice, and tamarind, scrap­ing up all of the browned bits in skil­let.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat and pour this sauce over the oxtails in crock.
  8. Cov­er and crock on LOW 8 hours.
