Warm your belly

Is there anything better than Ox Tail stew to warm cold bones during long winter nights?  

If there is I don't know what it could be.

Made from cow's tail and chock-full of nutrition, Oxtail is popular with traditional cuisines all over the world.

Oxtail Stew is:

  • super yummy
  • traditionally used combat the flu and the common cold
  • full of gelatin and collagen, which is great for bones, tendons, hair, and skin
  • helps with muscle repair (great for physically active individuals)
  • helps heal digestion 
  • rich in minerals (calcium, phosphorus)
  • thought to be good for thyroid health and may help to fight adrenal fatigue
  • high in electrolytes (magnesium, sodium and potassium) 

Here are a couple of great Ox Tail Stew recipes for you to try:

A one dish meal.
