Prep Time

Cooking Time

45 minutes


    1kg Food Lover’s Oxtail from our Convenience Range

    45ml (3 Tbsp) butter

    10ml (2 tsp) Food Lover’s Blended Seed and Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    1 onion, finely chopped

    3 garlic cloves, finely minced

    250ml (1 cup) Arborio rice

    80ml (1/3 cup) white wine

    500ml (2 cups) beef stock

    250ml (1 cup) fresh cream

    125ml (1/2 cup) grated hard cheese

    Parsley, to serve

    Salt and black pepper, to taste


    Preheat the oven to 180°C. Remove the oxtail from the plastic and place in the foil try. Heat in the oven for about 30 minutes.
    In a large pot on a moderate heat, add the butter and olive oil. Fry the onion and garlic for about 4-5 minutes while stirring. Add the Arborio rice and allow to toast for about 3-4 minutes while stirring. Add the wine and lower the heat to a low heat.
    Stir constantly and allow the liquid to be absorbed by the rice. Add the stock in small batches and stir in between for the risotto to become creamier. Once all the stock is absorbed, add the cream and allow to absorb. Add the cheese and the entire contents of the oxtail.
    Season to taste and serve with parsley to garnish.
