The Best Oxtail Stew Recipe: You'll Make This Slow-cooked Oxtail Stew Recipe Over & Over Again

Oxtails are a southern staple and also a British comfort food. Don't let the name scare you. The meat from the oxtails is tender and succulent and often used in stews. This rich slow-cooked oxtail stew recipe has a flavorful broth, potatoes and green peas. It will be in your recipe rotation after one bite. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 1/2 hours
Total Time: 8 hours and 45 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Season the oxtails with salt and pepper. Sear the oxtails in the hot oil until browned on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Put the oxtails into the slow cooker. 
  2. Add the onion, garlic, wine, tomatoes, tomato paste, stock, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and bay leaves. Cook on low for about 4 to 5 hours or until meat is tender. 
  3. Remove the oxtails and shred the meat from the bone. Return the meat to the slow cooker
  4. Add the potatoes and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 hours or until potatoes are tender. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  5. Whisk the flour into some of the broth and return to the slow cooker. Pour in the peas. Cook another 30 minutes. 

Note: If you prefer to serve oxtails whole, omit the step of picking the meat off the bone.
