no picture..was a pioneer recipe at KC when KC first started in July 2004. my hubby prefers the chinese version which the soup is very clear. this is a thick gravy stew type.

My mom cooked this using a pressure cooker.

Ingredients:
1 kg oxtail(trim off excess fat with a very sharp knife)
3 large onions(cut into quarters)
2 carrots(cut into 1cm thickness..cubes)
1 radish(cut into 1cm thickness..cubes)
1 cup tomato Sauce
2 tbsp Worchestire sauce
1 tbsp Red Cooking Wine(I used the SW brand)
2 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 5 tbsp water
2 cups water(tap water is fine)
Salt to taste

Method:
1. In a crockpot, add water to boil.
2. After boiling, add onions and oxtail.
3. Leave it to simmer for an hour, cover the pot.
4. After an hour, discard onions(oily!)
5. Then add all other ingredients except cornstarch and salt.
6. cook for another hour.
7. To thicken the gravy, add cornstarch mixture.
8. Add salt to taste.

Serve this on a plate, Jack's place style with baked potato or chinese style with plain rice.

If you do not like Oxtail, you can use other beef parts. For this dish, make sure you get TopSide beef. If you are unsure about which part of the beef to get, go to supermarket and ask the meat section assistant. Just say its to stew for long hours..what kind of beef to get.[/b]

Thanks, Gina.

I never knew that SW has red cooking wine. I only knew they have red wine vinegar. Is this red cooking wine halal? The red wine vinegar is halal coz I see the 'halal' stamp on the bottle.

Can I substitute this with the homemade red glutinous wine?

Alannia

of course can subs it with your home made red glutinous wine. Razz its more flavourful using home made ones. But this recipe is for all..in case other people don't have home made wines to use.

Alannia, you forgot the issue with Halal..wine can never be halal. Because muslims cannot take wine mah.. coffee

if muslims want to cook this stew, they can use vinegar or a very sour fruit like lemons to tenderize the meat.

Thanks, Gina.

I know Muslims cannot take wine. That's why I was so surprised when I saw a halal stamp on the red wine vinegar bottle. I even showed it to my DH.

We thought that maybe it's made from glutinous rice like the tapai, so that's why it's halal.

Any Muslims can share their views?

Hi Gina,

Does the tomato sauce here mean tomato ketchup or those used for pasta?

Thanks!

yes, Ruyi

My mom always use whatever she can find in her pantry. If not, she will send her domestic helper down to the shop across her home to get a can of Campbell's soup.

it was a recipe she improvise from watching TV.

I personally think a good cook is able to turn an excellent meal from what she has got in her fridge and pantry. Gina I think your mother and mine are such people.

Gina,
I've tried the recipe yesterday and it was a success! I've used topside instead of oxtail and the meat is very tender today.

Will bring it to my x'mas party later this evening.
yummy

Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
