As a food-lover and weekend cook, I seek novelty. I'm a sucker for a new dish, a new ingredient, a new technique. This dish was brought about by my discussion with my mother about paprika. So I looked up some dishes with paprika that we haven't cooked at home yet, and found a Spanish-style oxtail braised with chorizo recipe here.
I have never cooked oxtail before because it usually requires long, slow cooking. I don't have a slow cooker but I threw all cautions to the wind and bought oxtail anyway. I made my own version with the same ingredients except for white wine (my mother doesn't like wine in her food--I'm still trying to convince her that wine enhances the flavor :p) and parsley (didn't find it in the supermarket).
Instead of braising oxtail, I slow-cooked it until meat was fork tender. What makes oxtail special is the gelatin in the meat and bones. This gelatin dissolves into the dish when slow-cooked, creating a rich mouth-feel.
I would have wanted this a bit more spicy but my "critics" have a low tolerance to spicy food. This is perfect with steamed rice or crusty bread.

Exquisite dish is one of my favorites.
This is really good. Yummy!
Looks yummy Luna. I'll bookmark the recipe. Thanks.:)
I got lots of parsley, want some? :) Looks yummy and I would try cooking oxtail one day when I retire. Your mother and mine sound similarly anti-wine.
Ako din, di ko type ang lasa ng wine, so I'd skip it as well. :)
