Makes 6-8 Servings


  • 2 lb Oxtail
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp thyme

Dredge ox tail in flour, shaking off any excess and set aside. Place the oil in a wide pot over a medium heat. Once the oil is hot sear the floured ox tail on all sides and set aside.

Next, place the onion into the pot and begin to cook.
