Add dashes of flavor
How would we change things up regarding this stew? Try substituting the black beans for kidney, navy, or even pinto beans. Remember that each bean has a slightly different result in flavor. Also add some bacon, salt pork, or ham pieces to the mix for a smoke-flavored stew. Conversely, you can substitute the oxtails for short ribs or neck bones. Meanwhile, try using other non-traditional veggies for making stews. We recommend cauliflower, kohlrabi, sweet potatoes, or even cassava to make things alluring.
