Super Simple Super Saver Oxtail Potjie Recipe

It’s the potjie of potjies - the oxtail. The one everyone hauls out when they’re trying to impress. So how about impressing them with your sparkling conversation rather than slaving over a hot fire?

This is so bloody simple to get on the go. The OB’s adds a nice little twist… Credit for this one goes to Potjie Master Colin Ogden (who believes in stirring his potjies, sies, but this tasted nice, so he’ll get away with it, once).

Super Simple Super Saver Oxtail Potjie Recipe

  • 1 whole ox tail (+- 1.5kg)
  • Couple ‘o Onions
  • Tin of whole peeled tomatoes
  • 200ml Old Brown Sherry
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Red Pepper
  • Garlic 

Brown the onions with the oxtail. Fry 'em up good over a hot fire & hot pot. Add the tomatoes and sherry. Leave for 2 hours. 

Add potatoes, carrots and red pepper (sliced). STIR (sies!). Cook for another 2 hours minimum, preferably another 3.
