Oxtail stew is a warming and hearty meal that is perfect to enjoy when the weather cools down. This version takes a little over an hour to come together and then another few hours to cook. While it cooks it will make you whole house smell amazing. Though it takes a little time to come together, once you dig into the tender meat in a sauce made of fragrant and vibrant vegetables you will be cozy, warm, and satisfied.

  • 2.5 kilograms beef (tails, in pieces, 2.5 kg. approximately)
  • flour
  • salt
  • ground black pepper

I finally found the hearty and meat filled stew that I have always desired. It is thick and seasoned perfectly, giving you a perfect combination of flavors. A hint of spice and a spoonful of chunky goodness gets this recipe 5 stars. Will be making this stew for dinner next weekend.
