Wowzer!!!! okay, I pretty much followed the directions only omitting the Thyme and Chili Pepper. I substituted the chili pepper with 2 tbsp. of Sambal Oelek chili sauce. Also, I cooked 2 lbs of oxtails as opposed to 1 lb. I love the meat!!! I marinated the oxtails in vinegar and lemon juice for about 2 hours, then seasoned the meat before adding it to the skillet with 4 green onions, 1/2 regular onion, 2 tbsp. of garlic and a tbsp. of ginger. I just added more because I had more meat. I fried them in the skillet for 20 min. with soy sauce and red wine vinegar.(the onions did not burn as another commentor stated) Then I dropped the oxtails with sauted ingredients into the crock pot and let them cook on low overnight (11 hours total) . I let the Great Northern beans soak overnight then got up in the morning and boiled them for about an hour, removed them from the heat for about an hour and returned them to the fire on low for about 2 hours, they were almost done. I dropped them into the crockpot with the oxtails that had practically simmered off the bone and allowed all ingredients to cook another 2 hours adding 1 tbsp of cornstarch, salt, 1/2 tsp.cayenne pepper, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. onion powder, as it was tasting bland and 4 tbsp of brown sugar. OMG, you cannot believe the kick in this mix. It does make a difference what you choose to cook in , crock pot or pressure cooker and the beans cook much faster with the over night soak method. My family loved it!!!
