Old Oxtail Recipe
by: Anonymous

Hello, have you ever added bay leaves to your plain oxtail recipe?

When I was young my Mother would add bay leaves, onion, green bell pepper, black pepper, salt to taste, or no salt which is healthier, giving it a distinct flavor.

I just purchased some very expensive oxtails and I am trying to reinvent that flavor now that I am middle aged.

Here is a tip from some senior chefs.

When you buy any processed fresh or frozen meat, poultry, and fish, whole not ground up, place the meat in a covered bowl of water over night. The next morning the water will be a pinkish. Pour that water off, then start your recipe.


Healthier meat without those preservatives they add that is poisoning our bodies. We need not perish because of lack of knowledge.

Thanks for your website.
