Oxtail is the culinary name for the tail of cattle. Formerly, it referred only to the tail of an ox or steer, but now a more universal term. One oxtail typically weighs a little bit under a kilo, and is cut into short lengths for easier preparation and cooking.
Definitely one for the slow-cooker, it has a robust flavour that pairs well with bold herbs and spices and good red wine.
Note: Oxtail is sold as a whole piece, though it is portioned up ready for cooking. They are vacuum packed and frozen for purchase.

- Oxtail. Dumplings. Mushrooms. Soup. You had us at dumplings.

Animals are free to roam outside, all year round and graze on natural crops, 365 days of the year. This natural diet creates beautifully tender and flavourful beef.
