wife’s relatives coming for dinner this evening, and we were preparing for a 20pax dinner including grand nephews & grand niece, on CNY Day2 on 29.1.2017. ^^

one of the dishes i prepared was braised oxtail.

i did my first braised oxtail for the first time on 6.11.2016.

today i did a larger serving for 20pax, and the oxtail came up beautifully (see top photo).

i adjusted accordingly-

  1. rub with salt & washed & clean thoroughly & dry with kitchen towels
  2. coat 1tsp salt, 2 tsp black pepper, 1.5 tbsp cornflour.
  3. brown oxtail with 1 tbsp olive oil on high heat, set aside
  4. fry chopped shallots, sliced ginger, then sliced onions, chopped garlic, then carrots & celery.
  5. add back oxtail,add dry rosemary, parsley, chilli flakes. add 1cup red wine, 2 cups water, 1/4cup mirin, 1 tbsp sugar, 1tsp salt (to taste).
  6. place oxtail in large casserole & placed in 180degC oven for 4.5 hrs.

i checked the oxtail & turned the pieces using a spoon at different intervals=2.5 hrs, 3.5hrs etc & texture was perfect at 4.5hrs.

the liquids were reduced nicely, so i got a nice thicker, very tasty gravy & the oxtail were excellent in taste & texture, very tender & still having good bite, & the tendons near the bones were gelatinous & flavourful.
