Best oxtail,where to buy???

YummyYummy | Dec 23, 2012 09:11 AM

I plan to do some holiday cooking and want to know the best places to buy high quality good oxtail. The prices per weight if you know it?Probably going to head to St.Lawrence Market on Christmas Eve daytime and browse around the different meat vendors and buy the oxtail there.

Does anyone know of better places to buy oxtail? I'm a novice at cooking it and the owner of my Caribbean take-out place in a food court, he tells me there are 2 types of oxtail. White oxtail and yellow oxtail. He uses the latter,the higher quality meat. Unfortunately, the yellow oxtail he buys it from a distributor that only sells to restaurants or people in the food industry.

Bottom line, I just want to find a place that sells the best oxtail for my holiday cooking. Can somebody please point me in the right direction?
