Lazy Oxtail Stew
This is the lazy version of Bo Kho (Vietnamese Stew), which I think is perfect for a mid week meal, when your busy but still want to eat something tasty. In this recipe I have used Wagu tail from LL Wagu which is my favourite stall at the Flemington Farmers Market. I used a slow cooker to make this dish. Less mess and more flavour!
Makes 2 serves
1 kg of Oxtail cleaned
2 litres of beef stock
5cm piece of ginger, thinly sliced
1 stalk of lemongrass, cut into 5cm pieces
2 medium sized organic carrots, chopped to about 3cm
1 large onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves of local garlic, roughly chopped
1 tbls paprika
1 tbls fish sauce
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp clove powder
a pinch of pepper
1 tsp sugar
2 star anise
- Put everything into the slow cooker and mix properly, ensuring the spices and herbs are spread evenly.
- Make sure the meat is submerged; if not add a bit more water.
- Set the slow cooker on ‘low’ and leave overnight or for 8 hours.
- About 1 hour before its done, add the carrots.
- Season to taste before serving.
Serve with crusty Vietnamese baguette
If you don’t have a slow cooker you can do this on a stove for about 4-5 hours, depending on how soft you like your meat.
