  • 2 ½ pound of oxtail cleaned
  • 1 14.5 oz can Stewed Tomatoes
  • 1 10 oz jar roasted bell peppers roughly chopped
  • 1 celery stalk sliced
  • 1 medium red onion sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped/minced
  • ½ tsp dried thyme or 1 sprig fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp chicken bouillon seasoning
  • 2-3 tbsp Thai curry paste either red curry paste or garlic curry paste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Oil optional
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tbsp Coconut amino
  • Salt and pepper or Mrs. Dash Original to taste
  • 8 oz fresh spinach
  • 1 cup lima beans


  • Clean the oxtail and remove some of the fat.
  • Place the oxtail inside the slow cooker or crockpot.
  • Add all the stewed tomatoes, roasted bell peppers, celery, onion, garlic, thyme, oregano, chicken bouillon, Thai Curry Paste, lemon juice, and oil if using.
  • Cook on high for 3 hours
  • Add spinach and lima beans, and season to taste.
  • Continue cooking for another hour.
  • Serve hot with your preferred side dish


  • Oxtail is in the singular form because this recipe only required one. If you want to make it, more adjust the seasoning.
  • There is no need to add cornstarch or flour to thicken the sauce. The lima beans will thicken the sauce.
  • Make sure the meat is fully thawed before starting
  • You can use beef broth if you want. I find chicken broth to be tastier than beef broth and less salty.
  • There's no need to sear the oxtail before adding the pieces into the slow cooker.
