Hints and tips

  • This recipe can also be baked in one large gourmet oven dish rather than individual dishes.
  • Ask your butcher to trim and cut the oxtail into 5 cm pieces, as preparing the oxtail can be cumbersome.
  • You can purchase bouquet garni from your local fruit and vegetable shop, alternatively you can make a bouquet garni by using thyme, bay leaves and peppercorns and wrap in muslin cloth.
