The Quick Facts on Our Oxtail

  • Average weight: 5 lbs
  • Cut and portioned into approx. 4” thick pieces

The Butcher Shoppe's oxtail comes from the tail of the cattle and is cut into 4” thick pieces by our team of expert butchers in Toronto. Oxtail is rich in collagen and gelatin, which breaks down as it cooks, making for a luscious and silky sauce. While oxtail does take a while to cook, the incredibly rich flavour and tender fall-off-the-bone meat is so worth it! If you're looking to buy the best oxtail Toronto has to offer, order online today for delivery or pick up from The Butcher Shoppe!

Our Preferred Preparation for Oxtail

The oxtail should be cooked low and slow with plenty of liquid to arrive at perfectly tender meat. This is popularly done in the form of a braise, stew, or a set-it-and-forget-it slow cooker.

Looking for an unconventional marinade to delight the senses? Try this recipe for a maple syrup marinade for the perfect touch of sweetness that pairs perfectly with the rich, meaty flavors of the oxtail. The maple syrup acts as a tenderizing agent, allowing the marinade to penetrate deeply, enhancing both the flavor and texture. 

Whether you're planning to grill, braise, or roast, this recipe can elevate your oxtail dish to new culinary heights. Here’s what you’ll need.

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup – we suggest our small-batch Dark Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and marinate the oxtail for at least 4 hours or overnight for maximum flavor.  The hint of sweetness from the maple syrup will complement the savory richness of the oxtail, creating a taste sensation that's truly memorable.
