Braised Oxtail Pie


Nothing pairs better with a beer than meat and pastry. It’s an Aussie staple, and for good reason. In honor of Purim I used braised oxtail inside this meat pie.  The only issue? The men at your table may never leave.

Cook the Oxtail

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy ovenproof pot such as a Dutch oven. Sprinkle oxtail with salt and pepper and add in single layer to pot. Brown on all sides and transfer to a side dish.
3. Add a bit more olive oil and add the veggies. Sauté on medium heat for six to eight minutes. Remove half the veggies and set aside. Return the oxtail to pot. Add the stock and herbs and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover with foil and lid and transfer to bottom rack in oven.
4. Cook in oven for three to three and a half hours. Using a slotted spoon, remove oxtails to another dish and let cool enough to handle.

Make the Pie

1. Pull meat off the bone and mix with the veggies you set aside earlier. Stir in a few tablespoons of the braising liquids. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to cast iron skillet; spread evenly.
2. Carefully cover the skillet with the pie dough and fold excess down over the skillet
3. Using a pastry brush, apply eggwash all over the dough.
4. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
