Instant Pot Oxtail Stew

Instant Pot Oxtail Stew

People don’t talk about
oxtail stew these days, but it’s a true Primal-worthy classic.
With an arguably richer taste than beef and more succulent feel
when cooked for stew or soup, oxtail might just become a new
favorite. But the real difference (and reason behind the appealing
stewed texture) is the ample connective tissue—an incredible
source of collagen for the benefit
of skin, hair, joint health
and more. (Since we used bone broth here in lieu of
water or regular stock, this recipe is one of the best you can make
for collagen content.) You’ll enjoy warming up with this
gelatinous, flavorful and hearty dish on a late winter night. And
you might consider making an extra batch: it tastes even better the
next day.
