    Only problem I see is you list 4 cups of liquid. 2 cups broth, two cups water…. I see nowhere to add the water. Also, the addition of the allspice, I couldn’t find….

      Thanks for letting me know. Checked and corrected. Please check step 3 “Return browned oxtails and any accumulated juices to the pot, nestling them into vegetables.
      Stir in beef broth, water, habanero pepper, soy sauce, thyme, beans and black pepper.” Thanks again
