Yum! been ages since I've had an oxtail stew. Full of flavour. It's not rubbish meat it's just that you very rarely see it for sale and some don't like it only coz where it's situated on the cow.

Good luck finding one, it'll probably cost though. The last bit over the fence is always the sweetest!

Might be quite tasty

Oxtail is no longer a cheap meat, it along with neck chops has become rather more expensive. Pak n Save had oxtail for more than $6 for 3-4 small pieces, the larger pieces in a pack were around the $8 mark. It used to be such a cheap meat. Same with the neck chops they are now in excess of $10 for a measly 6 here.

I agree. I made oxtail stew the other day from 3 packs I'd bought over several months. When I totaled up the cost it came to about $30.00 and we had it for 3 meals. That was $10 a meal and therefore, imo, very expensive. Oxtail has become a 'delicacy'.

Neck Chops were $5.95Kg at our local supermarket the other day. We had a meal of them last week off the Lamb I butchered a couple of weeks ago mmmmmm delicious.

Mid winter slow cooked oxtail stew with star of anise and pumpkin dumplings just the best. Butchers will get it for you but it aint cheap.

I don't usually take the meat off the bone however like his idea of serving over pappardelle
