REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Rich and delicious! My recommendations are to use a good quality port and a rich beef stock for best results. Since it cooks for so long you need strong flavors to start so don't use cheap broth or wine. The oxtails were so wonderfully tender. I'm so glad I made this recipe!

REVIEW: 3 star recipe rating
Recipe is easy to follow, but tends to produce a mediocre-tasting final stew.
