last time i picked up some oxtail at my local farmers' market, a passerby made a face and asked, "what could you possibly use that for?" I very nearly wept for her.
continuing the autumn welcome wagon with cozy, indulgent oxtail ragu, served with pappardelle.
i won't even pretend that my favorite part of this meal isn't sucking the leftover meat off the bones like a savage in the corner of my kitchen. oxtail, i love you. never leave me.
