4 pounds oxtail, cut in 1-1/2-inch chunks and trimmed of excess fat

1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
1 bay leaf, crumbled

I love Oxtail Stew...I usually start with smaller pieces

That looks wonderful and I can almost smell it. Thanks for sharing, LT!

Thanks for this recipe LT.

The intense rich beefy flavor of Oxtail stew is like no other.

Cannot believe how expensive ox tail is today. I love ox tails! I usually just braised them and served with garlic mashed potato's and a veggie.

That's ridiculous.
We'll check out the Mexican market but there's no way I'll pay that much for mostly bone.

Looks wonderful, LT! I haven't had oxtail stew in years. I saw a couple of packages of oxtail in Albertsons the other day, and yes, they were spendy.

The Oxtail you see pictured cost me $28.37 - I didn't inquire about the weight... But there's enough tail for two more rounds of either Stew or Braising...

$6 a pound is outrageous. But as soon as they find out people like something or its becoming popular or popular again, they stick the knife in you and twist it.

This reminds me of Chuck Eye Steaks. I used to be able to get them for $2.99 a pound. I always bought them when in the store and always picked out the ones that looked the best. Very nice ones look much like boneless ribeye.
Now they are the same price as NY Strip.
Same thing happened with flank and skirt steak. They now cost as much as premium cuts. I guess we could say they ARE premium cuts today.

Did you buy the whole tail like in the picture? Top picture.
How many pounds and what was the price per pound, if I may ask?
I am assuming you did buy a whole one not trimmed yet?

I sometimes get a rabbit from them, but not often, as that's six bucks a pound, and the bunny is usually over four pounds
