  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 kg oxtail
  • 4 whole organic onions, peeled
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 t coriander
  • 2 cups white wine
  • 4 pears, peeled
  • 4 bulbs fennel
  • steamed brown rice or soft polenta, for serving

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Drizzle a cast-iron pan with a little oil. Heat until warm then add the oxtail. Brown on all sides while turning, discarding the excess oil. Add the onions and brown a little.
Remove from the heat, season with salt, pepper and coriander, then pour over the wine. Cover with a lid and secure well.
Cook for 2 hours or until the meat starts to pull away from the bone. Add a little water or more wine if necessary. Turn off the heat and keep warm in the oven.
Steam the pears and fennel in a steamer, until soft but still crisp. Plate the oxtail then add a steamed pear and bulb of fennel to each serving.
Drizzle with the sauce from the casserole dish. Serve with steamed brown rice or soft polenta.
