COOKING YOUR OXTAIL
Lightly flour each piece of oxtail and then brown in a pan
- Remove the oxtail from the pan and sauté garlic, thyme, rosemary, carrots, celery and onions
- Add the oxtail back to the pan (with the vegetables) and add Gamekeepers Beef Stock
- With the lid on, put in a moderate oven (170 - 190’C) for about an 1hr or when the oxtail is tender
- Remove from the oven and let it cool down
- Take the meat off the bones, skim off all the fat from the liquid and discard the vegetables
- Put the meat and left over stock into a shallow pan, bring up to a slight simmer and put in diced tomatoes, artichokes and broad beans. Add more Gamekeepers Beef Stock if the sauce is too thick and reduce again
- Serve with gnocchi, pasta or mash potatoes.
Our Oxtail is cut into 1 1/2 inch thick disc, delivered frozen. An excellent fit for stews and braises, our oxtail is rich in flavour and needs little introduction. Oxtail is the tail of a cow. In olden days, it came from the tail of an ox but now it comes from the tail of a cow. Gamekeepers collaborates with a handful of Victoria's highly acclaimed farmers to bring you these speciality cuts of meat, prepared and packed by our in-house team of expert butchers.
