Need a recommendation for an oxtail dish

I feel like making oxtails these days, and would love to hear back from you on your favorite recipe. I am thinking something hearty, with a touch of sweetness. Thanks a lot!

This is a Lidia Bastianich recipe that I love:

I grew up eating ox tail soup my dad made. Simple, but delicious. Brown the ox tails and reserve. Sauté some onions, add the tails when onions soft. Cover with low sodium chicken stock and simmer for 3+ hours until meat fork tender.

Add some tomato paste, celery, carrot and salt and pepper to taste. Other additions are to your taste (garlic, thyme, wine, etc.)

Serve with peasant bread.

Thanks all for the recommendations. sexyLAMBCHOPx, the cardamom recipe really looks like something I would like to try. I also found Paula Wolfert's "Stop-and-go braised oxtails with oyster mushrooms", and now have to make the decision which one to go for.
