To start, prepare your oxtails by rinsing them with a mixture of water and vinegar, then pat them dry. Mix brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, allspice, and browning sauce; rub onto oxtails.

Heat vegetable oil in a pressure cooker on high sauté. Brown oxtails on each side, then set aside.

Now, it's time to build those layers of flavor.

Sauté until onions soften.

Stir in thyme, oxtails, remaining beef broth, and ketchup. Pressure cook on high for 45 minutes; naturally release pressure, allowing the oxtails to become fall-off-the-bone tender. allowing the oxtails to become fall-off-the-bone tender.

Open the lid, and remove the oxtails and veggies. Switch your pressure cooker to sauté mode and combine a mixture of cornstarch and water to thicken the cooking liquid. Stir in a can of butter beans, drained and ready to go, and let them simmer in the flavorful broth for about 5 minutes.

Finally, bring it all together by returning the oxtails and veggies to the pot, allowing them to mingle with the butter beans. The result is a hearty, comforting stew that's as impressive as it is delicious.

Serve up with a side of rice, or a la carte to truly savor the rich aromatic flavors of this traditional dish.
