4 Bay Leaves
Lightly salt and pepper ox tail and brown the meat on all sides in a oven pot
with tallow or grass fed butter over a high heat. Add rosemary and
thyme near the end of this process while heat is still high. Add red
wine to deglaze and keep heat high for 2 minutes before removing from the
heat. Add garlic, red onions, sweet potatoes (cut into rough
chunks) and apple cider followed by a pouch of Bone Broth and bay leaves. Top up the pot to near the top with filtered water.
