Are there any among you who have not experience a braised oxtail?

Possibly the most succulent cut of meat ever.

Leave it to a mo to eat butt

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?

by Anonymousreply 212/28/2012

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?

by Anonymousreply 412/28/2012

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

by Anonymousreply 512/28/2012

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

by Anonymousreply 612/28/2012


You mean soup made of this offal?

by Anonymousreply 712/28/2012

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 Anonymousreply 1812/29/2012

[R16] - years ago I actually prepared "curried rabbit with rambutans" from a southeast Asian cookbook; it was pretty good.

by Anonymousreply 1912/29/2012

Why, at the grocery store, R18

by Anonymousreply 2012/29/2012

I've never seen it at the Grocery, however thinking about it I am sure a Chinatown butcher would carry it.

by Anonymousreply 2112/29/2012

Not carried in grocery stores here but in many Asian and Mexican stores. They eat some weird stuff.

by Anonymousreply 2212/29/2012

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.

You people will put anything into your mouths.

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

I frequently make oxtail stew. Wonderful, rich flavor.

by Anonymousreply 2612/29/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2912/31/2012

Isn't it just like beef? Or is there something different about it?

by Anonymousreply 3012/31/2012

R30 it has more collagen and therefore a succulent texture you don't find in most beef.

by Anonymousreply 3112/31/2012

Ah, thank you R31.

by Anonymousreply 3212/31/2012

I finally tried the pig tail last that was good and so very porky.
