Ale Gar is available from my on line store

150 ml Ale-Gar 

250 ml strong black coffee

200 ml beef stock

Cover and place into the refrigerator overnight.

When ready to cook, heat a heavy based oven proof casserole over high heat,

Remove the oxtails from the marinade before adding to the pan to brown all over ( keep the ale gar aside)

Remove the oxtails from the pan then add the onion, and lightly brown. 

Add the crushed garlic and cook for 2 minutes before returning the oxtails to the pan.

Add the Ale-Gar marinade and deglaze the pan before adding all the other ingredients.

Stir , cover and place into a pre heated oven at 180 dgr and cook for 30 mins before turning the heat down to 110 dgrs  to cook for a further 1 ½ hours just so that the pot is gently simmering.
