Braised Oxtail in Red wine instructions

  1. Fry and brown onions in a large pot with some oil.
  2. Add defrosted room temperature oxtail in the pot and fry until brown and set aside.
  3. Fry carrots, garlic and tomatoes for about a minute (you don't want it soft too soon).
  4. Add the oxtail back in the pot along with the red wine and beef stock as well as a handful of parsley..
  5. Cover the pot and turn down the heat and allow it to simmer for 3-4 hours slowly. Make sure to check on it every 40 min or so to prevent it from drying out. Add more water/stock (just bear in mind that stock is salty) I mix it 50/50 (half stock and half water ratio) to ensure that it's not too salty..
  6. You can always add more salt or seasoning but you can't take it out, and oxtail is not a dish for a gamble ;).
  7. For the spiced rice: fry together all ingredients in a pot with some oil until soft and fragrant. Add the rice last. And yes without water at first..
  8. Add water to rice and cover and cook over low heat until there's no more water left..
  9. Fresh sides: steam the broccoli until preferred tenderness and just before serving sprinkle a little salt/pepper and feta over..
  10. Salad: Chop avocado and cilantro together and add lemon juice and a drop or two of olive oil and mix..
  11. Enjoy!!.
  12. **this is only a guideline and cooking time may vary. Also, feel free to adjust the wine / garlic ratio and even add extra vegetables like celery and potatoes etc..
