Pressure Cooker Oxtail Stew (Low-FODMAP)
Even though this easy oxtail stew comes together really quickly in a pressure cooker, you’ll love how hearty and comforting it is.
Cooking with Oxtail
Oxtail is full of connective tissue so it requires a long cook time. Using a pressure cooker turns an all-day event into just an hour of cooking. After all that heat and pressure, the oxtail meat is fall-off-the-bone, and the connective tissue is rich and buttery.
A Perfect Family Meal
This recipe is based off one of my mother’s so you’ll find it has some Chinese ingredients like soy sauce and ginger. She didn’t have an Instant Pot back then, so it took a long time to cook. My mom would rarely make it, so it really felt like a special occasion when she did. My brother and I would be full of anticipation, which was intensified because it takes all day to cook.
I adapted her recipe for the Instant Pot so it’s easier and quicker, but it still makes for the ultimate family meal.
