Slow Cooked Oxtail Stew with Kale

This slow cooked oxtail stew with kale is an inspiration from my friend, Jason McCallum, who loves to eat and cook.  I was lucky when he invited me over to try his stew.  I tried my best to imitate his stew based on the main ingredients he used and it turned out toddler-approved.  My little foodie loves slurping on the broth, and eating the carrots and corns.  Hopefully she’ll give the kale a try someday. 

 

Ingredients: 

1 tray of oxtail (1.64 lb)
1 bag of 10 oz Bird’s Eye mixed vegetables
1/2 bag of sweet peas (about 1 cup)
1 bunch of kale

32oz Swanson’s beef broth (50% less sodium)
1.5 liter water

1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
1/4 teaspoon herb provence
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
