Braised Oxtail (Experimental First Attempt) on 6Nov2016

oxtail-stew

braised oxtail

did my first braised oxtail today.

saw a few online recipe, decided to just mix & experiment a bit myself.

result???

pretty good actually, very tasty, tender, savoury..& veg were wonderful…

still cannot compare with the oxtail stew we had at the second FGS (For Goodness Sake) Charity Dinner made by the host’s helper.

hers different, had quite a bit more tomatoes, overall taste experience still better than mine.

braised oxtail

so i just bought 3 large oxtail pieces from cold storage, 800g for S$20, promo price like S$26.90/kg.

washed with salt, then coat with 1/2 tsp salt, black pepper, 1 tbsp corn flour.

fried in olive oil to brown/colour, then removed from pan.

added olive oil to pan & fried chopped shallots, sliced ginger, chilli padi. then onions, garlic, then added carrot, celery, & spices. then added wine, water, mirin, sugar

then added back oxtail & placed in caserole in 180degC over 2hrs

braised oxtail

can boil to reduce if too much liquid, & add cornflour to thicken if required (i didn’t)

braised oxtail

oxtail was very tasty. so was the veg & gravy.

however i think my slow braised spanish beef ribs still better. thinking of doing this dish for a dinner on 29.11.2016, but maybe i will decide on the beef ribs instead. not sure yet.
