Second stop on the Remy vs. Rome food tour: CODA ALLA VACCINARA! Oxtail is a traditional Roman dish that dates back to the 1300s.
I used this recipe (translated here by Google Translate into English): https://www-cookist-it.translate.goog/coda-alla-vaccinara-ricetta/?_x_tr_sl=en&_x_tr_tl=it&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=wapp
The most difficult part for me was toasting the pine nuts—third time's a charm. I also (accidentally) went really heavy on the chocolate...which did not prove to be an issue.
If you can find Oxtail where you are, I definitely recommend giving this a try. The dish was savory and delicious. There was a lot of sauce left over, so we let it simmer down some more the following day, then poached eggs in the sauce—sort of like a Roman Oxtail Shakshouka—and had that for dinner.
