The famous ingredient of perhaps the best warming winter soup ever, Oxtail is also fabulous for making rich stews - the bone marrow adds a sticky, glossy texture that's impossible to beat. Ours is cut from the thicker top part of the tail, so while the pieces will vary in size, the difference shouldn't be too great.
  • Prepared from our own top quality, grass-fed beef from the British Isles
  • Cut from the superior top of the tail, giving more meat for your money
  • The aroma and taste will bring back happy memories - and create new ones, too!
Box Contains:

    • 2 packs Oxtail, bone in, 4-6 pieces per pack (pack weight 600g)

Prepare the Meat: At least 30 minutes before cooking, remove the defrosted meat from its packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to come to room temperature. Pre-heat the oven to 140°C-160°C/275-325°F/Gas 1-3. About one third of the meat weight gives you the weight of vegetables needed. Try onions, carrots, celery and leeks.
Sear for Flavour: Heat a large ovenproof pan on a high heat, add a little oil and sear the meat until nicely browned all over. For stews and casseroles, sear the small pieces of meat in batches, to make sure they are evenly browned all over. Do not burn the meat as it makes it taste bitter. Then take out the meat and sear the vegetables until nicely caramelised.
Add the Liquid: After searing the vegetables, place the meat back in the pan. Add wine, stock or a mixture, and herbs such as bay leaf, peppercorns or cloves. Make sure that the liquid covers at least a third to a half of the meat and bring gently to the boil on the hob. This is known as Èdeglazing'. Avoid boiling too quickly as this can make the meat stringy.
The Cooking Process: Cover with a lid and transfer into the preheated oven, or continue to simmer gently on the hob at a very low temperature. For the perfect braise we recommend using the oven method as the process is more gentle and the meat does not stick to the bottom of the pot as it can with the hob method. Check from time to time and top up with liquid if needed.
Test the Meat: Cooking times vary depending on the cut and your oven. As a rule of thumb, you should check casseroles after 1 hour and at regular intervals thereafter. The easiest way to check joints is to use a meat fork, inserted into the thickest part of the meat. The fork should go in and out easily. With stews and casseroles, simply take a piece out and taste it.

It’s all good but I really can’t feed back for every thing I buy every time
Poor size, very little meat, and still tough after 9 hours cooking. Thanks for your comment.

We’re sorry the Oxtail was not as you anticipated, but thank you for bringing it to our attention.

We have now been in touch and resolved this to your satisfaction, but please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
Good size pieces, fine flavour. Convenient size packs
Quality of meat good, didn’t take too long to stew
I make an oxtail ragout from a Robert Carrier recipe book. The oxtail is full of flavour.
Great for stew, excellent quality.
Cooked these for 10 hours and just fell off the bone so juicy.
Always good and meaty product
Make a lovely stew. My dog looks forward to the bone lol!
Oxtail was one of my husband's favourite dinners but I haven't seen it for sometime. He was very happy when I gave him this. An easy meal to do, throw everything into casserole, place in oven, go out, come home to a tasty, satisfying meal
Again had before and enjoyed
The best oxtail soup I've made - the quality of meat was excellent
love ox tail but this is the best we have ever tasted
Very, very good and tasty
Had them before xxxxxxxxxxx
I made a gorgeous stew with this. Mmmm?
Good meaty slices of oxtail with a great flavour. I made oxtail soup, takes some time but much better than a readymade tin of soup !
I liked them the first time round and therefore ordered them again.
Excellent quality & taste.
There is nothing like an unctuous oxtail casserole on a cold, wet day
