    Zobeed's Note:

    This is the most velvety, scrumptious stew-like dish! My family BEGS me to make this. It's time consuming, but so worth it! I probably only make it a couple times a year (usually in the colder months) and it's always a hit.

    1. 1
      In a 4- to 6-quart heavy saucepan boil wine until reduced by about half (about 3 1/4 cups).
    2. 2
      Trim oxtails and pat dry. Season oxtails with salt and pepper. In a large pot, just large enough to hold oxtails in one layer, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over moderately high heat and brown half of oxtails on all sides, transferring to a bowl. Brown remaining oxtails in 1 tablespoon olive oil in same manner and transfer to bowl.
    3. 3
      Add coarsely chopped shallots, garlic, carrots, leeks, onion, and celery to the pot just used to brown the oxtails and cook in 1 tablespoon olive oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened.
    4. 4
      Arrange oxtails over vegetables and add reduced wine, herbs, and enough broth to just cover oxtails.
    5. 5
      Bring liquid to a boil. Turn to a low heat and braise oxtails, covered, on the stove for 3 hours (you can also do this in the oven), or until meat is very tender.
    6. 6
      Transfer oxtails with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Pour braising liquid through a fine sieve into a large container and discard solids. Refrigerate overnight.
    7. 7
      Next day, skim the fat off the liquid. Combine the oxtails with the liquid in a large pot and simmer for another 2 to 3 hours.
    8. 8
      Serve with mashed potatoes.

      Golly, this is good! So rich, so tender, so beefy. It did take a long time to make, and isn't an inexpensive dish, but it is definitely worth it.The ingredient list is clear, the directions are detailed, I halved the recipe but did not run into any trouble. Well, except at the very end, when the bottom started browning and I removed the pan from the heat early. They are done, so I think it was fine. Thank you very much for suggesting I try this dish. I'm very glad I did.
