Braised Oxtail
In this recipe, slices of oxtail and diced vegetables are braised in red wine. In the pressure cooker it takes only about 40-45 minutes for the meat to become tender. I like the flavorful oxtail meat.
  • 2 lbs / 1kg oxtail
  • freshly ground pepper, salt
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (5oz / 150g)
  • 1 carrot, diced (5 oz / 150g)
  • 1 turnip, diced (5 oz / 150g)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup / 180ml red wine
