  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large pot with a lid over medium-high heat. Coat the oxtails in the flour and place in the Dutch oven. Cook until browned on each side. Stir in the 2 diced tomatoes, red wine, and enough water to cover the meat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cook for 3 hours, adding additional water or beef broth if the liquid becomes low.
  2. After 3 hours, skim off some of the fat from the top and heat it in a skillet. Cook and stir the onion until browned, about 8 minutes. Stir in the chopped tomato and carrots. Cook for about 3 minutes. Stir in the beef broth, soy sauce, and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, then stir the onion mixture into the oxtail. Allow to cook for 20 minutes, stirring in more water if the liquid becomes too low.

It was pretty good, but I made some modification. I used a can of chopped tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes, added some dried basil, black pepper, paprika, and sea salt. Scooped out fat by the ladlefuls and added more water. I also added about 2 tbsp of vinegar at the end and simmered it for another hour to develop the taste. Next time, I'm going to use the pressure cooker to get the Oxtail more tender to cut the cooking time. I don't have 3+ hours to cook a stew when I can do it in less than half the time. Overall not too bad for a basic stew, but you'll have to tweak to your liking.

Very good recipe.. we add some nothern beans and cabbage and some venegar. But everything turns out great!


Reminds me of the stew my mom used to make! Simple, delicious and the oxtail adds such a great flavor. 1. I used extra carrots (5) since I'm a fiend 2. Added parsnips which was a great cinnamon flavor 3. Used Lawry's seasoning salt for add'l flavor (salt / pepper / paprika / onion & garlic powder work) 4. Next time, I will use less water. Soup ended up less thick than in photo 5. I used only 1.5 lbs oxtail and kept rest of portions the same and it was fine
