Poles think I'm nuts to eat a cow's tail, but oxtail stew is delicious.
Buddy you are not nuts as it is a delicacy in my book.
It's a bit greasy, however like you stated, in a slow cooker it cooks that fat out.
You now have a very flavorful meat in a stew after you skim the grease of the top.
You can make a lot of stew with a small amount of ox/cow tail.
Pour the stew over some rice and you can feed a lot of kids.
Something that sticks to your ribs on a cold day.
Oxtail in the U.S.A. cost about $9 per pound which is not cheap for something that is half bone.
Very popular in Jamaica too along with cow hoofs.
The meat in cows feet (half the price of tail) is very sweet also.
We call these kinds of meals "poor people's food". Yummy !
So we are back to leasing a 1000 acres of government land from Poland and raising prime beef.
So Harry, how much per pound does a nice Delmonico steak cost in a butcher shop in Poland ?
Do Poles buy say a quarter beef to put in their freezer from a farmer like we do here in the U.S. ?
