What is Beef Oxtail Cut:

Beef Oxtail is a cut of meat that includes the tailbone of the cow. It is a tough and collagen-rich cut, which means it requires slow cooking to become tender and develop its delicious flavors.

How to Cook Beef Oxtail:

Beef Oxtail is a versatile cut that can be used in various hearty and comforting dishes. Here's a basic recipe for cooking Beef Oxtail:


  • 1kg Beef Oxtail Cut
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil (vegetable or canola oil)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 cups beef broth or water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: additional herbs and spices like thyme, rosemary, or paprika for added flavor


  1. Preparation: If the Beef Oxtail is frozen, make sure to fully thaw it before cooking. You can do this by placing it in the refrigerator overnight.

  2. Brown the Oxtail: In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the cooking oil over medium-high heat. Brown the Beef Oxtail on all sides, creating a nice caramelized crust. This step adds depth of flavor to the final dish.

  3. Sauté Vegetables: Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, carrots, and celery to the pot. Sauté the vegetables for a few minutes until they start to soften.

  4. Add Liquid: Pour in the beef broth or water, covering the oxtail and vegetables. Add the bay leaves and any additional herbs and spices you prefer for seasoning.

  5. Simmer: Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let the Beef Oxtail simmer for about 2.5 to 3 hours or until the meat is tender and easily falls off the bone. The longer cooking time allows the collagen in the oxtail to break down, resulting in a rich and flavorful broth.

  6. Season: Season the stew with salt and pepper to taste. You can adjust the seasoning to your preference.

  7. Serve: Remove the bay leaves and serve the Beef Oxtail stew in bowls, accompanied by crusty bread, rice, or mashed potatoes for a hearty and comforting meal.

Beef Oxtail is delicious when slow-cooked in stews, soups, or braised dishes. Its gelatinous nature adds a luscious and velvety texture to the cooking liquid, resulting in a flavorful and satisfying dish. Enjoy the tender and rich flavors of Beef Oxtail in this comforting and classic preparation.
