Does anyone know of any places that serve rabo encendido (Cuban oxtail) in the DC metro area or Baltimore? The closest thing I've heard of is a Dominican place called Los Hermanos in DC and some Caribbean places. Any recommendations?
The best things in life are passed down through generations—just like the allspice and cinnamon-scented oxtail of Chef Jerome Grant’s ancestry, currently on offer at Sweet Home Café in The National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Oxtails might be considered a “tough” cut of beef, but when they're stewed at a gentle simmer for hours, the meat melts right off of the bones. In other words, braised oxtails are a perfect hearty comfort food to warm you during the cooler months.
