Oxtail is simply the tail of beef cattle. The tail makes a wonderfully hearty soup that stretches a small amount of meat with the addition of any variety of vegetables. Oxtail soup has become comfort food for many.
Although oxtail may not be pretty to look at, its taste is worth seeing past its knobby appearance. Simply put, the oxtail tastes like beef, and when cooked, creates a deeply rich flavour. Comparing braised oxtail to a short rib, the oxtail is more tender with a silkier texture. Because of the tail's high amount of bone and cartilage and a small amount of meat, it does need to be cooked low and slow for the best results. Coming from Gemstone Grass Fed Beef, this beef is dry aged for 21 days, producing a much more flavorful and tender product.
