  • 3. Add the oxtails back to the pan and cover with water and season with 2 teaspoons salt, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, and 2 cups fresh herbs - we love oregano, thyme, and parsley for this dish.
  • 4. ⁣Cover with a tight-fitting lid and bake at 350ºF in the oven for 3 hours.
  • 5. After the meat is done braising, remove the oxtails from the pan and reduce the mushrooms in the braising liquid until it is thickened.
  • 6. Serve the oxtails in a shallow bowl in a pool of braising liquid with rice, pasta or polenta.
