The oxtail is the tail of the cow cut into small chunks. Each piece consists of lean meat, fat, bone, and connective tissue. Oxtail adds flavor, gelatin, and nutrients to any soup, stew, or broth.
Oxtail dishes are a part of our clean eating diet because of all the collagen and protein released when this grass-fed cut is cooked low and slow. Additionally, the meat becomes incredibly tender and flavorful when used for braises and stews. You may have seen oxtail used in Caribbean cuisine, but we think oxtail should be on everyone’s list of cuts to try.
If you're a fan of beef soup - beef barley, beef noodle, beef vegetable - oxtail perfectly fits the bill. The meat becomes meltingly tender and the robust beef flavor to your soup, stew, or broth.
Each package of Red House Ranch oxtail weighs roughly two pounds.
