Simply the tail of the cow cut into small pieces, each one contains flavorful meat and fat, bones, and lots of connective tissue. A staple for soups and stews especially in Caribbean cuisine, this is a cut all families should try at least once!
The bones and connective tissue are what make this cut perfect for braising low and slow. When cooked slowly in liquid, our pasture raised oxtail releases huge amounts of flavor and gelatin that give soups and stews their flavor and texture. The time waiting for the oxtail to cook is perfect for sitting around the kitchen table sharing family stories and growing closer.
Each package of Painterland Sisters beef oxtail weighs a bit over two pounds and is enough for a small stew or pot of soup. Much of the weight is bone, so plan on having a higher weight per person than with stew meat or other boneless cuts.
