Possibly the most succulent cut of meat ever.
Are there any among you who have not experience a braised oxtail?

I take it you eat the part of the tail up by the anal sphincter, yes?
This would be the meatiest, juiciest, most aromatic part, yes?

The tail is neither the anus nor the intestine.
I am not a fan of the chitterling, however the tail is sumptuous.

Is it anything like a Cleveland Steamer?

What is a Cleveland Steamer, I do not know the term?

My father talked me into one decades ago on my birthday. I did not find it so.

You mean soup made of this offal?

Cleveland steamer is slang for scat.

R7 bad link and I don't think it is offal.

Link is fine, offal-eater.

I like this particular item. However, I once dined at a Filipino joint where the staff had a policy of refusing to serve it to "American" customers, unless they said that they had had it before, and genuinely liked it. They'd apparently been burned by curious westerners trying it, and declaring their dislike.

The BF likes it but(t) I. Just. Can't.

Maybe Filipino's don't know how to prepare it well?
I had it in Argentina and they toss it on the grill where it stays tough. They rarely braise anything.

Looks disgusting and sounds unappetizing.

Maybe this can pique your appetite.

On another birthday he tricked me into hasenpfeffer, which turned out to be rabbit. I was a gullible child.

OP, it is quite good. I also LOVE pigtails in sauerkraut. It is the luscious.

Pigtails...where does one buy a pig tail?
|by Anonymous||reply 18||12/29/2012|
[R16] - years ago I actually prepared "curried rabbit with rambutans" from a southeast Asian cookbook; it was pretty good.

Why, at the grocery store, R18
|by Anonymous||reply 20||12/29/2012|
I've never seen it at the Grocery, however thinking about it I am sure a Chinatown butcher would carry it.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||12/29/2012|
Not carried in grocery stores here but in many Asian and Mexican stores. They eat some weird stuff.

I've had it OP and it is really delicious...time consuming, but easy to prepare and very much worth it.
Never seen pig tail before! I bet that would be good as well.

I tried pig ears as tapas once, since that's supposed to be traditional. Not Recommended.

I frequently make oxtail stew. Wonderful, rich flavor.

On my recent visit to New York I had oxtail stew at a Cuban/Chinese restaurant on Broadway in the upper westside. The name is La Caridad 78 It was good and hit the spot on a cold December day. Sucked the bones dry! Btw, the side was a huge plate of rice and beans, as hungry as I was I could only eat half. It must be very popular because the take out delivery boys were busy the whole time I was there.
I'm linking the Yelp page to this restaurant.

Had oxtail bolognese over rotelle at Salvation Cafe in Newport in October. AM STILL CRAVING IT.

Isn't it just like beef? Or is there something different about it?
|by Anonymous||reply 30||12/31/2012|
R30 it has more collagen and therefore a succulent texture you don't find in most beef.
|by Anonymous||reply 31||12/31/2012|
Ah, thank you R31.
