‘Rabo Encendido’ - Cuban Oxtail Stew.

We had a great time filming for the Food Network Channel: Barbecue in America with Bobby Flay TV show. The episode (Episode: BQ1A02) Cuban-Caribbean Connection was filmed in South Florida.  We provided a brief history of the origins of Barbecue, along with historical recipe favorites such as Ajiaco (Potato Stew), Aji (Stuffed Peppers), and Waganche (Grilled Red Snapper with Tropical Fruit Salsa). The recipes are available through the Food Network website. No one is really sure where the term Barbecue originated. The conventional wisdom is that the Spanish, upon landing in the Caribbean, used the word Barbacoa (Native Caribbean word derived from the Arawak Language) to refer to the natives’ method of cooking over a griddle.
