    red wine
  • wine having a red color derived from skins of dark-colored grapes

  • Wine is an alcoholic beverage, typically made of fermented grape juice. The natural chemical balance of grapes is such that they can ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes or other nutrients. Wine is produced by fermenting crushed grapes using various types of yeast.

  • The color of wine is one of the most easily recognizable characteristics of wines. Color is also an element in wine tasting since heavy wines generally have a deeper color.

Oxtails in Red Wine

Oxtails in Red Wine

Some people shy away from Oxtail thanks to its proximity to a cow's business end but it is seriously tasty stuff!!

The recipe for 4 people

(This is lifted from and I used it without any modification apart from doubling everything up.)

3 tablespoons vegetables oil
4 to 4 1/2 pounds oxtails
4 celery stalks, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 leeks, chopped (white and pale green parts only)
1 onion chopped
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 750-ml bottle dry red wine
12 sprigs fresh thyme
12 sprigs fresh parsley
8 whole cloves
4 bay leaves
5 cups chicken stock or canned low-salt broth

2 tablespoons all purpose flour

The method

Heat oil in heavy large Dutch oven over high heat. Season oxtails with salt and pepper. Add to Dutch oven and cook until brown on all sides, about 12 minutes. Transfer oxtails to platter. Add celery, carrots, leeks, onion and garlic to pot and saute until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Arrange oxtails over vegetables. Add wine, thyme, parsley, cloves and bay leaves. Boil until liquid is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Add stock. Bring to boil. Reduce heat. Cover Dutch oven tightly and simmer until meat is very tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

Remove oxtails from cooking liquid. Tent with foil to keep warm. Strain cooking liquid. Skim fat from surface and reserve. Transfer 2 tablespoons skimmed fat to heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir until mixture browns, about 10 minutes. Whisk in cooking liquid. Simmer until sauce thickens enough to coat back of spoon and is reduced to 2 cups, stirring frequently, about 45 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Return oxtails to sauce, cover and refrigerate.)

Rewarm oxtails in sauce over low heat. Transfer to large bowl and serve.

Ps. I'm aware that the photography isn't too hot but I wanted to share how good this was
