Slow Cooker Oxtails


I began my browning the oxtails before adding them to the slow cooker. I also made a fresh salsa verde, blender style which would be the sauce for our dish. A quick simmer of tomatillos, onion, and garlic then placed in the blender along with cilantro, which we forgot to add during our facebook live. These moments are exactly why I enjoy hosting Facebook lives you never know what will happen. It was a funny moment. Once the browned the oxtails are added to the slow cooker, pour your salsa verde over the oxtails cover and cook on low for up to 8 hours. The oxtails will be fall off the bone tender and the salsa verde creates a delicious sauce. Shred the meat with a fork and serve in warm tortillas garnished with a few radishes slices and additional salsa if you like. These tacos were a hit with Melanie’s family and with mine also.
