Slow-Cooked Oxtail in Red Wine & Tomatoes {Low Carb, Paleo & Gluten-Free}

I am most definitely making FULL use of my slow-cooker {crockpot} this winter and this slow-cooked oxtail dish is another winner!

I was all set on making this for dinner and reckoned that 6/7 hrs would be enough for tender-fall-off-the-bone oxtail…

It was not.

Yay for take-outs! {Not really, I don’t care for take-outs, but sometimes it’ll have to do…}

Overnight did the trick! The next day I had a lovely pot full of rich, succulent, tender, juicy, fall-off-the-bone oxtail. Hooray.
