Oxtail used to be as underrated as beef trotters but not anymore. Like trotters, oxtail require hours of cooking in order to be tender and delicious.Back in the days Oxtail used to be very cheap but it has now become very pricy because more people are discovering how delicious it is.

The fun thing is that once upon a time oxtail was considered as meat for underprivileged people because of it's cheap price and its long hours of cooking. But now not every underprivileged person can afford buying this meat.

The truth is I also can't afford buying it every month, I only buy it once in a while. Every time I buy it, I enjoy it like it's my last.

Sear the oxtails: Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season the oxtails with black Pepper and salt, sear the pepper and salt on all sides until browned. Transfer the oxtails on a plate and set them aside.


I may not share oxtail stew recipe but the reality is it has become my favorite meat, and I have no doubt it will become your favorite too once you try it.
