For example, to make oxtail stew in peanut sauce, boil 3 pounds sliced oxtail in 6 cups of salted water for two to three hours. Next, reserve the broth, brown the meat in a skillet with cooking oil, and return the browned meat to the broth with 1 large sliced onion and 3 cloves minced garlic. Bring the stew to a boil, add 1/4 cup soaked annato seeds and 1/4 cup toasted rice flour. Add 1 bunch of sliced green beans, 3 cubed eggplants, 1 small banana flower bud, inner layers cut in 2-inch slices and 1 bunch sliced bok choy at two minute intervals, in the order listed. Mix 1/2 cup peanut butter with 1 cup of broth in a bowl, add it back to the stew, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
