How To Cook Oxtail and Leg Beef Stew

This recipe I learned from my mother she used to cook this dish when we are a kids back to the Philippines. When we first migrated here in America and have first gathering in my mom house she prepared this one of her dish that everybody liked.

My husband he is so picky eating habit, if not my stuff I mean if I'm not the one I cooked he will never eat, so I decided to try to cook this dish with my own idea.
