I made this up...from reading a bunch of Korean recipes and just loving Korean food. It's not really authentic, but it's really good! The gochuchang is essential...there is no substitute. My BF would never touch oxtails as a kid...this is his favorite dish now. —Susan Drake
sweet onions, sliced
soju or sake
asian or regular pear, sliced (canned is OK)
grated fresh ginger
gochuchang (not optional!)
fresh red chili paste (or more to taste)
dried red chilies
dark sesame oil
good quality soy sauce
In This Recipe
season the oxtails with the salt and pepper
heat the oil in a heavy pot, and brown the oxtails
remove the oxtails, and caramelize the onions/pears in the same pan.
deglaze with the soju or sake.
add all other ingredients (enough liquid to cover)... remove to a crock pot to cook on high for 4-5 hours or, alternately, cover the pan and cook in the oven at 325 for the same amount of time.
