Oh my gosh, please do! A cuban dish with oxtail sounds fantastic!

Funny you should ask - I keep thinking I need to try to recreate an oxtail dish I had at a Cuban place in Key West ... maybe I will actually do it and post it now!!!

Oxtail will take more time to break down than short ribs, otherwise I can't see why it wouldn't work. Meanwhile here's a recipe for Roman style oxtail. Don't skimp on the celery http://www.food52.com/recipes/2741_and_now_our_tail_comes_to_an_end_coda_alla_vaccinara

I don't know about Merrill's short ribs, though my gut instinct is that yes, it would work pretty well. The best way I've had oxtail so far was in a ragu over gnocchi. I don't have the actual recipe, but a search turned up this: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2008/09/semolina_gnocchi_with_oxtail_ragu
which looks similar, and tasty.
