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.
While you might not think of turning bulgur into porridge, it’s a delicious whole-grain breakfast with a texture similar to instant oatmeal. Mashed dates naturally sweeten and enrich almond milk for a creamy, satisfying bowl.
