Jamaican Endsout Cow Foot Recipe



In Jamaica during 1600-1700s, the rich would take the best parts of a cow for their meals, leaving the “fifth quarter” – head, tail, organs, feet, and skin – for their servants. Workers took what they could and created sumptuous slow-cooked meals like Cow Foot Stew.
