Oxtail comes from the tail of a cow or steer. The bones in the meat contain lots of marrow, which lend a richness to recipes and carries many health benefits. Used frequently in Italian and Korean cuisines.
Curries are perfect for low-heat, slow cooking. It helps all the spices and flavors meld and come together. This one is finished with a delicious gravy, made possible by the oxtails’ melting marrow.
