We were lucky enough to visit the Bahamas a couple of years ago, and were served this on our first night there. Just amazing! So here’s our Syn Free Jamaican Oxtail Stew version.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Why not try this Syn Free Jamaican Oxtail Stew with our 1 Syn Rice and Peas.
Oxtail is such an under rated cut of beef, and it’s also extremely cheap not to mention it’s Syn Free on the Slimming World Extra Easy Plan.
You should be able to get 1kg for about £5, and 1kg will serve 4-5 people. You might not see it on display in your local butchers, but ask and they’ll probably have it.
The Instant Pot

What can I say about the Instant Pot? It’s like a like a slow cooker/pressure cooker hybrid, and it’s probably one of our favourite, and most used kitchen gadgets.
If you’ve never heard of it you really should go and check it out over on Amazon. Imagine the best Slow Cooker in the world, then times that by a hundred. There’s not much that it can’t do!
It’s a slow cooker and a pressure cooker, which means you can cook recipes like this Syn Free Jamaican Oxtail Stew in no time at all.
Remember the pressure cookers of old that would splutter and rock, and make all sorts of scary noises? None of that with the Instant Pot.
Just set the time, close the lid and let it do it’s thing. It even keeps your food warm once it’s finished cooking! How good is that?
You can cook this in the slow cooker, but it’ll take considerably longer (4-5 hours). The pressure cooking function of the Instant Pot is a god send when you’re in a rush.
