Braised Ox tail

Ox tail is the meat surrounding the top of the Cow’s tailbone and, since it is mostly bone surrounded by meat and fat, it is a dish best made on a calorie bomb day.

On the plus side, if you are on a low carb-high fat diet, then you can eat this guilt free with some salad.

1 large onion
2 stalks of spring onion
400g of Butterbeans
