My spouse has a craving for oxtail stew. I have never cooked with oxtail before. I'd like to make this stew in a crockpot. Here is my question: Most of the recipes I have seen require the meat to be removed from the bone and cut up before putting it in the crockpot. Some even suggest making tge stew a day in advance so it can chill and the fat skimmed off before reheating. I don't have a lot of time in the a.m. and was hoping to just throw the oxtails in the crockpot with the other ingredients and then remove the bone after it is tender and fully cooked, like I do with ribs and pulled pork. Is this unfeasible? i don't have a lot of time in the morning to spend on food prep. Thanks!
