Simply delicious. I cut the amount to 4 which made 2 servings for each of us and more closely fit the amount on oxtails that I had. Lots of well developed flavor and very rich tasting tender meat. The cooking rime was no problem. I made it on a very cold (in the -30's) with a heavy wind and it was comforting to have something wonderful in the pot smelling oh so good and making the house feel so cozy.
