Oxtail Kare-Kare is a traditional Filipino dish renowned for its rich flavors and unique ingredients. "Kare-Kare" itself is a savory stew characterized by its thick peanut sauce, often incorporating a variety of meats and vegetables. A favorite dish of the Local Filipino's working in Epsom hospital this delicious Oxtail, with its tender meat and gelatinous texture, adds a depth of flavor and richness to this beloved Filipino dish.

To prepare Oxtail Kare-Kare, the oxtails are first braised until tender, allowing the meat to become succulent while infusing the broth with its robust flavor. Meanwhile, a paste is made from ground roasted peanuts, which forms the base of the thick and creamy sauce. This paste is combined with ground toasted rice to further enhance the sauce's texture and flavor.

Key ingredients such as annatto seeds, which lend a vibrant orange hue to the dish, and shrimp paste, known as bagoong, are also integral to the authentic taste of Kare-Kare. These ingredients contribute to the dish's complex and savory profile, balancing the richness of the peanut sauce with a hint of sweetness and umami.

The oxtails and peanut sauce are then simmered together, allowing the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken. Vegetables such as eggplant, string beans, and banana blossoms are commonly added to the stew, providing both textural contrast and additional layers of flavor.

Oxtail Kare-Kare is typically served with a side of shrimp paste for dipping and steamed rice, allowing diners to enjoy the dish's hearty flavors and comforting aroma. It is often enjoyed during festive occasions and family gatherings, as it is a dish that brings people together to savor its indulgent taste and celebrate Filipino culinary heritage.
