Who doesn’t love nuggets? I mean really. Whether stuffed with chicken, beef, or that thing you found in your fridge (I don’t judge), we just can’t seem to get enough of the stuff. But what if you could shake things up a bit? Say you could replace that breaded outer layer with something a little more sweet and suave…like a plantain? I think we might be on to something – but hold on. I’m not quite finished. Now imagine that sweet plantain layer wrapped around something as juicy and tender as little chunks of slowly cooked and perfectly seasoned oxtail. Yup.
As tender as you’re thinking. Next, dip that golden ball of goodness into a portion of spicy stewed tomatoes. Now take a bite…did you get that? The contrast between the sweetness of the plantain and the spiciness of the sauce? The increase in tenderness as you sunk deeper into the bite, from plantain to fall-off-the-bone oxtail? What’s life without a pleasure like that, right?
