  • How to cook oxtail in the oven?

  • How do you tenderize oxtail?

  • The marinade will also tenderize the oxtails as they chill. Heat 2 to 3 US tbsp (30 to 44 ml) of oil in a skillet with 1 teaspoon (4 g) of sugar. Pour the vegetable oil into a large pot or Dutch oven and turn the burner to medium-high. Once the oil shimmers, add the sugar and stir so it dissolves.

  • What are the different types of oxtail recipes?

  • Here are eight delicious oxtail recipes for soups, stews, and main courses. Choose from soul food oxtail, Spanish oxtail, and eastern European oxtail recipes.

  • What’s the secret to making great oxtail gravy?

  • My secret formula is to add lots of fresh seasoning along with some tomato ketchup, broad beans (or butter beans), carrots or spinners (skinny Jamaican-style dumplings), after the oxtail has cooked. Even though the beans, carrots and spinners are optional, they help to thicken your gravy. They also give your oxtail great flavour.
