RABO DE TORO (OXTAIL) 4 pers.
Wine recommendation: Muga Selección especial 2014
A popular plate in Autumn and Winter in Andalusia is the Rabo de toro stew, the perfect winter-warmer after a day out hiking.
- 2 kgs of oxtail, cut into regular-sized pieces
- 3 leeks, sliced
- 4 onions, sliced
- 4 carrots, sliced
- 4 cloves of garlic, peeled but left whole
- Half a litre of broth/stock
- 1 litre of red wine
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 cloves
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons of flour
Wash the oxtail pieces, season with salt and pepper, and coat with flour. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and gently fry the oxtail until it is well-browned on all sides. Remove from the pan and keep to one side. Lightly saute the vegetables and garlic in the same pan, then add the bay leaves and cloves. Place all of the cooked ingredients, including the oxtail, into a large saucepan or casserole with a lid, cover with the wine and leave to simmer gently for at least 2 hours, until the meat easily separates from the bone. You can either enjoy this dish immediately or let it rest for 12 hours before gently reheating it in a basin placed over boiling water.
