Delectable Creamy Risotto

This creamy risotto is an excellent savory side dish that you can pair with braised oxtail recipes. This is a rice and cheese recipe with a taste similar to classic risotto, but with a bit more style.

Arborio rice is short-grain rice used primarily in the preparation of risotto. Arborio rice has more starch present since it undergoes less milling than medium grain rice. So, Arborio rice must be cooked slowly with a hot liquid to release its creamy starch content without becoming mushy.

Manchego cheese is made from sheep's milk. It has Spanish origins and is traditionally served with quince paste. It has a nutty, yet salty taste. If you can't find Manchego cheese at your local grocers, you can replace it with the Asiago, Muenster Cheese, or English Cheddar.

If your local grocers doesn't have arborio rice, you can use sushi rice as a substitute. To substitute sushi in this risotto, make sure you don't rinse it first, as keeping the starch in the dish will yield a greater result.

5 tbsp butter
1 (¼ cup) arborio
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
2 eggs
1 cup Manchego
4 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Savory Braised Oxtail in Wine

Transform this braised oxtail into something rich and succulent for an incredibly satisfying and delicious meal for the entire family. A flavorful and easy oxtail recipe that you can prepare in just an hour for your next family meal.

Oxtails are an underrated cut of meat. People tend to choose the cuts they are more familiar with. Cuts like oxtails are only used by chefs and other culinarians — who have ample time to develop flavor using time-consuming techniques. Oxtail can sometimes be hard to find except in specialty butcher shops. But, they are worth the effort. These cuts are gelatinous and have a full flavor and texture when cooked right.

Tomato puree would be a perfect addition to this recipe. It adds a depth of flavor that balances the acidity of the wine and the sweetness of the vegetables. If you prefer using the traditional way of cooking the oxtail without the use of a pressure cooker, then you can simmer the oxtail for 3-4 hours until tender.

Adding fresh herbs such as thyme, basil, and parsley would be a perfect addition. Roasting the oxtail for 1 hour before transferring to the pressure cooker, adds another dimension of flavor and creates a nice color on the oxtail's outer layer.

2 tbsp paprika
