I'm treating my husband tonight

At near $9.00 each oxtail. My husband's excitement is rising, he is in for a treat 'tonight'.

i love oxtail and used to give it to my family often then the price went through the roof and now days unless i find a cheap one forget it . goes really well in the slow cooker

Cripes. $9.00 each! No wonder your husband is getting all hot and bothered.

Is that $9 for a whole tail?
$9 is cheap where i live, & I'd happily pay that.

Love oxtail. Not had it for a long time. Last time I cooked it I used Roald Dahl's recipe where I roasted the oxtails first. Tasted so good.

The person who gave me my recipe for oxtail stew using Guinness advised me to "stretch" oxtails by adding a small amount of chuck steak, or similar.

Love oxtail but so expensive, remember when we were kids we always had oxtail stew.

Chef_joybells2, Jul 9, 5:10 pm

Chef_pickles7, Jul 9, 5:16 pm

Chef_rainrain1, Jul 9, 6:26 pm

Chef_uli, Jul 9, 9:06 pm

Chef_pickles7, Jul 9, 9:18 pm

Maybe he will "treat" the cook tonight?
Get her hot and bothered.

Chef_smallwoods, Jul 9, 9:28 pm

My oxtail is going to be free, as it is attached to the rest of the beast in the chiller.

Chef_smallwoods, Jul 9, 9:29 pm


You are so lucky.

Chef_pickles7, Jul 9, 9:52 pm

My mouth is watering. Also like neck chops- lamb, hogget or mutton!
