# Oxtail stew
My favorite oxtail stew
Here at Versailles, a Cuban restaurant, for my favorite oxtail stew in town. Oxtail stew or rabo encendido is a Creole-based dish simmered in tomato sauce, bell pepper and Cuban herbs and spices. It is served with steamed rice, plantain and black beans. Yum!
Versailles Cuban Restaurant
A craving for oxtail led us back to Versailles, a Cuban restaurant serving oxtail stew "rabo encendido." Here's the description of this dish from their website. "A Creole based stew with a sharp peppery taste cooked with traditional Cuban herbs and spices, olive oil, and bell peppers." YUM! We also ordered the famous Versailles garlic chicken, tamales and empanadas.
