Oxtail Stew

Oxtail stew. A tried and true country home favorite.

This recipe originates back to a time when people were poor and used less desirable parts to make amazing home cooking.

Oxtail Stew

The great part of this is that the fat content of the tail, after simmering for hours, really adds a thickness to the sauce and a melt in your mouth quality to the meat.

It’s different than steak or cubed meat, but not slimy or undesirable at all.

You can serve it over rice or mashed potatoes, I have even served it alone with garlic toast or bread.

Oxtail Stew

I typically do this recipe in a crock pot and simmer it all afternoon on low, which gives the house an amazing smell and has everyone drooling by dinner time.

Yield 6 servings
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 4 hrs
Total Time 4 hrs 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 3 lbs oxtail
  • 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
  • 1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 whole star anise pods
  • 4 cups water *
  • 4 cups beef broth *

Instructions
 

  • Heat large stockpot over medium-high and add all ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer on low for 4 hours. The meat should literally fall off the bone at this point and be fork tender.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes or rice and enjoy!

Notes

You may need to adjust the water or broth up or down depending on the size of the pot and the amount of oxtail, as you will need enough liquid to just barely cover the meat.
