PRESSURE COOKER RED WINE BRAISED OXTAIL
Serves 1
  • Ingredients:
  • • 5 pounds beef oxtails
  • • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • • 8 small whole shallots, peeled
  • • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch coins
  • • 2 celery stalks, sliced 1/4-inch
  • • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • • 2 bay leaves
  • • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • • 1 cup dry red wine
  • • 1 cup Ruby Port
  • • 4 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • • 3 tablespoons Wondra flour
  • • 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • • Gnocchi, mashed potatoes or pasta, for serving

Instructions:

  1. Season the oxtails generously with salt and pepper. Place the flour in a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper and mix to combine. Dredge the oxtails in the flour, coating well, and shake off any excess.
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of the olive oil into your Kalorik Perfect Sear Pressure Cooker. Press the “Browning” button and adjust the time to the maximum 20 minutes, then press “Start”. Add the oxtails and cook until golden brown all over, turning often. Once golden, remove the oxtails from the pot, place them on a plate and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil to the pot along with the shallots, carrots and celery. Continue using the “Browning” function and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables begin to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Season the vegetables liberally with salt and pepper. Add the garlic, bay leaves, rosemary and thyme and cook for 1 minute more. Repeat the browning function by pressing “Browning”, adjust the time to the maximum 20 minutes and press “Start”, to add more cooking time. Add the red wine and port and use a spatula to scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.
  4. Add the beef stock and return the browned oxtails to the pot. Lock the lid into place and press the “Pressure” button to set to high pressure. Adjust the cooking time to 60 minutes and press “Start”.
  5. When the cooking time has elapsed, let the pressure release naturally. Remove the lid and ladle 1/4 cup of the liquid from the pot into a small mixing bowl. Add the Wondra flour and stir well to dissolve. Add the flour mixture back to the pot and stir. Lock the lid into place and press the “Pressure” button to set to high pressure. Adjust the cooking time to 5 minutes and press “Start”. When the cooking time has elapsed, use the quick release method to release the pressure until it is safe to unlock the lid.
  6. Skim the fat from the surface of the oxtails and taste and adjust the seasoning, then serve the oxtails over gnocchi, mashed potatoes or pasta, garnished with freshly chopped parsley.
