  • 1 red onion ,
  • 1 garlic (head),
  • 1 carrots ,
  • 2 celery ribs ,
  • 1 orange (average),
  • 1 cinnamon sticks ,
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg ,
  • 8 clove ,
  • 1 star anise ,
  • 2 bay leaves (or beef suitable for slow cooking, bones included, 2 kg / 4.4 lb / 70 oz, this will yield about 50% meat)
  • freshly ground black pepper (or beef suitable for slow cooking, bones included, 2 kg / 4.4 lb / 70 oz, this will yield about 50% meat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or beef suitable for slow cooking, bones included, 2 kg / 4.4 lb / 70 oz, this will yield about 50% meat)
  • 4 heads lettuce (or beef suitable for slow cooking, bones included, 2 kg / 4.4 lb / 70 oz, this will yield about 50% meat)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 150 °C/ 300 °F. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Place the oxtail in a preheated large non-stick pan greased with ghee. Briefly brown from all sides. Transfer the oxtail into a baking dish. Peel and halve a large red onion, juice the orange, peel the carrot and halve the garlic head. Place all the spices in a pot, bring to boil and cook for about 5 minutes. When done, take from the heat and set aside. Place all the ingredients from the pot on top of the browned oxtail. Cook for 3-4 hours until the meat is soft (almost falls apart). When done, remove from the oven and leave to cool down. Discard all the spices, orange and vegetables - or eat the softened vegetables if you cannot resist 🙂 Using a fork, separate the meat from the bones and place into a bowl. Pour some of the sauce over it. Fold the shredded meat on top of fresh lettuce leaves and enjoy!
