Wagyu Oxtail: What Is It & How Do You Eat It?

Our Browsey Acres Wagyu oxtail is worth adding to your meat bucket list. While this cut is typically overlooked in the Wagyu world, its flavors are full and fantastic when slow-cooked to perfection. Originally cut from an ox—hence the name—our Wagyu herd produces delicious oxtail that’s sure to make your mouth water.

What Is Oxtail?

Wagyu oxtail is a fatty meat that is ideal for braises, soups, and stock. The tail is skinned and cut into sections, each of which has a section of tailbone with marrow in the middle and a chunk of meat around the outside. An average oxtail weighs between 2 to 4 pounds.


To prepare, cook your oxtail slowly, so the connective tissues and fat have time to dissolve. This is the ideal way to make the most of this cut’s flavors. After a couple of hours, the meat will slide right off the bone. Sometimes, compared to short ribs, oxtail is delightful when braised and barbecued. You can also make it in a savory, slow-cooked stew with potatoes, onions, and carrots.

We know you’re going to love Browsey Acres Wagyu oxtail’s tender texture and juicy flavor. Though it requires a longer cook time than most cuts, the result is a satisfying, hearty meal that’s sure to please the whole family. Give it a try! You won’t regret that you did.
