Oxtail Stew

ingredients

serves 4 - 6
1 oxtail, about 2 1/2 Ib (1.1 kg) in weight, jointed
1/4 cup (1 oz) 30 g flour
2 3/4 cups (21 fl oz) 600 ml stock
2 onions, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 sticks celery, chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
little gravy browning (optional)

method

1. Trim any excess fat from oxtail. Heat a large non-stick frying pan and fry the oxtail on all sides, slowly at first to extract the fat then at a higher heat to brown. Lift it out with a slotted spoon and keep on one side.

2. Stir the flour into the fat remaining in the pan and cook for a minute. Blend in the stock and bring to the boil, stirring until the sauce has thickened.

3. Transfer the oxtail to an ovenproof casserole with the vegetables, seasoning, cayenne, and bay leaf. Add a little gravy browning, if liked. Cover with a lid and simmer very gently for about 3 1/2 - 4 hours or until the meat can easily be removed from the bones.

4. Skim off any surplus fat. Taste and check the seasoning. Remove the bay leaf. Serve with bright green young cabbage.

While the above recipe looks very attractive, and I've no doubt is very wholesome, no stew is complete without potatoes. Also, you do NOT, under any circumstances, serve cabbage with a stew. Cabbage is served with bacon and potatoes.

Many thanks for this delicious and easy to follow
recipe. I added garlic to mine and a tablespoon of
Lea & Perrins Worcester Sauce. Three-quarters of an
hour, before the end of cooking time I added chunks of potato and let them simmer until soft. The mouth-
watering gravy is absorbed by the fluffy potatoes and is truly yummy!
Best ever!
