I really love oxtail (it’s so tender and flavorful), and I’ve been lucky that it’s so plentiful in the UK! I see it at the butcher’s all the time, whereas I had to special order it in New York from my local butchers there.
I’ve been playing around with different ways to enjoy oxtail. Jeremy loved the tomato and garlic oxtail recipe I made initially – the recipe is here – and he didn’t want me to keep experimenting since he couldn’t imagine it better. Of course, when he tried this recipe with the mustard gravy, he completely agreed that it was even better!
Paleo Crock Pot Oxtail Recipe with Mustard Gravy
This recipe involves cooking the oxtail in a crock pot initially (although you could do it with a large stock pot on the stove or a pressure cooker) and then reducing down the broth in the pot and adding mustard to it to create the gravy.
With just 4 ingredients (one of which is salt), it doesn’t get much easier!
