  • 2 cups beef stock (or beef suitable for slow cooking, bones included, 2 kg / 4.4 lb / 70 oz, this will yield about 50% meat)
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 garlic (head)
  • 2 celery ribs
  • 1 orange (average)
  • 1 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 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!
