We’re following up this morning’s pasta making class with an exclusive recipe from épicerie‘s chef and owner, Sarah McIntosh. If you know me, you probably know that I’m not the biggest meat-lover, and that 95% of the dishes I eat and cook are veggie-centric… but this Fall Oxtail Papperdelle has me singing an entirely different tune. Mark my word: at the first sign of temps dipping below 70, I’m making it my personal goal to braise some oxtail. This recipe is light, bursting with flavor, and best of all, super simple (since it features super flavorful braised meat, you don’t add any flavors to the pasta dish that weren’t used in the braise). Scroll down for the recipe, as well as some adaptations that’ll allow you to enjoy it all year ’round.

    This looks so delicious! I’m a sucker for fresh pasta and braised meats! Yum!

    I am making this dish the moment the temperature dips below 60 degrees! Sounds absolutely mouth-watering. Any wine recommendations?

    Looks delish!!! I’ve been in the mood to try to make oxtail! We buy all of our beef from a local farm (and the sweetest, most hard working people I’ve ever met). Everything we’ve ever had from them is amazing….and makes me feel a little less guilty because I know they’re really nice to their cattle.
