Constrained Cooking Oxtail Tacos

Constrained Cooking Oxtail Tacos

If you’ve never had oxtail tacos, you are in for a huge awakening of your palate and your mind! I love making tacos from unique ingredients, not the boring steak, pork or chicken at every tacqueria. I really enjoy thinking about how to make something different from an ingredient that I typically use elsewhere. For example, I usually use oxtails in Italian menus serving them over pasta, risotto or polenta. But on a taco, they become a star on their own.

Oxtail tacos are unique and delicious!

After you’ve cooked the oxtails as I’ve demonstrated in the video, begin building your taco. Use a good quality tortilla and heat it in a dry pan for a few seconds on each side until it becomes soft and bubbles a little. On top of that, use either shredded lettuce or cabbage with a little lime juice and olive oil sprinkled on it. Then build it as you like! I use oxtail on top of the lettuce, pico de gallo, avocado, radish, cotija cheese and cilantro. You will be blown away and make these both when you have leftover oxtail from another menu or on it’s own to impress your friends for a Taco Tuesday party. Bon Appetito!
