I have a coworker Dianna who is Jamaican and she makes awesome oxtails.. I told her I never make them but I do like them so when she is going to make them I will give her money to make some for my daughter and I...of course now it will last me so much longer with my smaller stomach, lol.. this is what it looks like (I already put the rest in fridge so I got picture online) She makes it with broad beans and serves it with rice and beans

    YUM! I wanted to make oxtails and was SHOCKED by how expensive they were! Even chicken livers, hearts and gizzards (which I love) are way too expensive, in my opinion! My brother makes a mean oxtail dish :) Basically crock-pot them with just about any seasoning you feel like + some chicken broth. But then, anything in a crock-pot is good!

    Yes, oxtails were a cheap meat when I was a kid. It was one of my Grandmother's Depression recipes and they were awesome. EVERYTHING is so expensive now!!

    I absolutely love oxtails! They are so expensive though. I haven't had any in quite some time, and would really love to make some soon. In the meantime, you enjoy yours.

    My dearest "Gram" was straight off the boat from Germany. She never spent a ton of time in the kitchen but dinners were always delish. The oxtails reminded me of a funny story, one day, she was making Oxtails with Rutabaga in the "piss-pot" aka pressure cooker from the 1950s. Well one day when I was about 12 (so the mid 1970s), I was sitting not 20 feet from the stove when we heard a loud bang. When Gramps and I went in to investigate, there was my grandmother, mumbling near-profanities in German, covered in our rutabagas and the oxtails flew up into the drop ceiling lights. After hours of removing and cleaning the ceiling tiles we went out for dinner to my favorite restaurant in Ft Lauderdale, The Bavarian Village.

Thank you for sharing your life and journey with us. Something as simple as your oxtails opened up a whole bunch of great memories and really lifted me out of a borderline panic attack this afternoon. You are beautiful, loved and blessed -

    I see those on the food network a lot, and always want to try them. Problem is, I have never seen any in the stores here and have not run into them at any restaurant .....yet!

    Hmmm - oxtails... reminds me of rocky mountain oysters or bulls nuts. Only could eat those with alcohol consumption. emoticon
