How to make it

  • Coat oxtail with seasoned flour and brown in batches in a fry pan with butter and olive oil.
  • Transfer to a large casserole, preferably cast iron.
  • Saute onion and carrot in fry pan until tender, pour over brandy and wine and boil for a minute.
  • Pour into casserole, add herbs, garlic and liquid. Cover with baking paper and place on lid, cook in oven for 2 1/2 hours.
  • Pour liquid off into a jug and scoop off fat as it rises to the surface. Pour sauce back over meat and continue to cook for another 45 minutes or until beef is falling off the bone.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a frypan and sauté mushrooms for several minutes, add to oxtail and serve.

    well, i wanted to 'publish' my oxtail recipe - i can forget it - very similar to this one. only i use some chopped celery stalks and some other spices as well as chunky tomatoes and tomato puree and i also drink the wine while cooking it :-)and use beef fond instead of chicken. hm, maybe not to much alike, after all. sound great.
