The dish is traditionally made somewhat bland-tasting or unsalted so it can be eaten with bagoong (salted shrimp paste). The combination is perfect with rice.

This is my all-time favourite Filipino dish! I always have my dad make it when I visit home This recipe is pretty much how I make mine, however, there are a few difference: 1) I also add a pound of stewing beef to the oxtail to make it "meatier", 2) I don't use bok choy and it still has enough vegetables in it, 3) I mix the peanut butter right into the broth - the heat melts it right away, 4) I like using crunchy peanut butter for more texture. Great recipe! Everyone should try it

This is basically how I make mine. It's one of my favorite filipino dishes. And it can be served with a dollop of shrimp paste. For coloring, you can add achuete to the sauce.

Delicious! I was skeptical about the peanut butter but it was absolutely wonderful. Will definitely make this again and again!

I made this exactly as the recipe stated;and it was very good, but I felt something was missing. I would have given it a 3-star rating after the first attempt... However, I made it a second time, with the following changes/additions: First, in addition to the oxtails, I added about a pound of beef stew meat. (I am matriarch to a family of carnivores!) Then, I browned all of the meat at high heat....using half canola and half olive oil, and I lightly salted and peppered it. This step is so important (to me) in order to flavor the broth! Then I added about a cup of red wine to de-glaze the pot, scraping all of the little crispies from browning the meat. From this point, I followed the recipe pretty closely. (Pretty closely, because I also added fresh Thai basil and marjoram when I added the veggies.) I served it over brown rice, with a wonderful crusty Portuguese was really an international meal by the time I finished with it! All of my changes bumped the recipe to a 5-star, but I don't know how authentic it is now! Thanks for the recipe!!

This is one of my favorite foods--I daydream about it when I know I'm going to have it for dinner! One thing that really helps it be excellent is to use BEEF BROTH or BEEF BOUILLON instead of plain water! I also put some cayenne pepper in, and we eat it over rice--YUMMY!
