Cut as much excess fat from the oxtails as possible. Heat the oil in the "potjie" (or a camp oven) and saute the meat until brown.
Add onions, garlic, chilli, cloves, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Stir-fry for about 10 minutes to combine flavours and soften the onions. Add hot water, cover and simmer very slowly in the Weber for 2 hours. Be careful not to burn.
While the meat is cooking, prepare the vegetables. Go to where your potjie is bubbling over the fire, and add the vegies in that order. Do not stir, layer them in carefully. Cook slowly for another 1 hour.
While cooking, mix ingredients for the sauce, add and cook for another 30 minutes, or until meat is just falling off the bone.
