"This is a perfect dish on a cold winter day. It takes time and a little bit of effort but is well worth it. The oxtails are so tender and the red wine gives this dish a wonderful flavor."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Simmer the red wine in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced by half. Meanwhile, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Dredge the oxtail in the seasoned flour, and shake off excess; set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a roasting pan over medium-high heat. Brown the oxtail on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the oxtails from the pan and set aside. Turn the heat to medium-low and melt another 1 tablespoon of butter in the pan. Stir in the shallots, garlic, onion, carrots, and celery. Cook and stir until the vegetables have softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the thyme, bay leaf, parsley, beef broth, and reduced red wine. Place the browned oxtail on top of the vegetables in a single layer, then bring to a boil.
  4. Cover with a tight fitting lid or aluminum foil, then bake in preheated oven until the oxtail is very tender and nearly falling off the bone, 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  5. Once the oxtail is tender, remove the meat to a serving dish, cover, and keep warm. Strain the remaining braising liquid through a mesh strainer into a saucepan. Simmer over medium-high heat until the sauce has reduced to 2 cups. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and pour over the oxtail to serve.

A rich dish. I added 2 cups sliced small Bella mushrooms during the last hour. Spooned over a background of soft cooked grits. Oxtails are all about deep smooth flavor. I upped the garlic and on...

My family absolutely loved this recipe. 3 1/2 hrs made it a little overcooked, but the flavour was out of this world and the meat just fell off the bone!!

Absolutely delicious! I did not change a thing! I may want to add more garlic, carrots and other veggies next time though
