What is oxtail?

The oxtail is nothing more than the tails of beef cattle. This underrated cut of meat is ideal for making soups and stews. It is as fleshy and rich as short ribs.

Many oxtail recipes are popular traditional dishes in South America. For example, in Venezuela, we use it to make soup: “Sopa de Rabo” and stews “Rabo Guisado”. Today, I am sharing my modified version of the traditional Venezuelan stew recipe adapted to the busy lifestyle most of us have these days.

I love making this recipe on a Sunday. I put my slow cooker on Saturday night, then on Sunday morning, after breakfast, I finish the stew. It doesn’t require anything that difficult for the rest of the cooking time, so I can get on with the rest of my day, and at the end of the day, my family has a hearty, hot meal to enjoy.

Why 3 stages

I make this recipe in 3 stages of cooking because oxtail is a fatty cut of meat, and I like to remove large pieces of fat and bones before adding the vegetables, so that it does not end up being a big greasy mess. If you don’t mind the extra fat, you can cook it all together from the beginning, around 6-8 hours over low heat. Then add the flour suspension and peas for the last 30 minutes of cooking. If you decide to do it in stages, like me, you can let the oxtail cook (step 5) overnight in low cooking mode. Then finish the stew the next day.

Storage and freezing instructions Store

leftovers from the stew can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to
