The past week has been awful. It is so incredibly hard to be half a world away when you lose a family member. I wish that I could be there right now with the rest of my family. Alas, I cannot.
I made this two weekends ago. It was a lot of work but I do think it was worth it. However, it could easily be made a lot simpler with the use of chuck steak or gravy beef in place of the oxtail. This would eliminate the need for the soaking and the blanching. I will admit that I didn't make the pastry. I placed the filling in a dish and topped with puff pastry. I served it with a sweet potato & swede mash and steamed green beans
