My Beef Stew
 
Originally, I just wanted to make an oxtail stew. I love the chewy, gelatinous tendons and the marrow. However, after finding out how expensive oxtail is, I realized I could just get more tendon from beef tendons, and more marrow from beef shank, both of which cost half as much as oxtail.

Smoked the beef (with mesquite) while I was making chicken stock from the remains of a smoked chicken. Then I braised the beef with the stock, worcestershire sauce, carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms, jalapeños and various herbs/spices.

The braise was finished in the oven because my charcoals started dying, and I didn't want to deal with lighting more coals.

Wow, you really went for it, with the tendons and all, nicely done. That had to taste great

That looks really tasty. Plus it isn't every day you hear the phrase..." I love the chewy, gelatinous tendons and the marrow..." :mrgreen::mrgreen:
