Throwback Thursday: Oxtail!

…because it sounds so much better than cowtail?

I love unloved cuts of meat. There aren’t that many of them anymore; things like wings and ribs that used to be butcher’s secrets have gone mainstream. (That’s right, I’m a hipster cook. “I was into flat iron steak before it sold out, man.”)

Oxtail is one of the “other cuts” that used to be hard to find unless I went to my local ethnic markets. Nowadays I can get them at my local grocery store, and Costco has the whole tail, cut into convenient pieces and vacuum sealed. And, other than a little extra fattiness, it makes a great cut for braising in my pressure cooker.
