hey y'all--i'm wanting to make some ox-tail stew. i looked at cub on lake st. the other day and they seemed very expensive for pre-packed stuff.

hackenmueller's? clancy's?

where to go?

    I've gotten them at Everett's and Holy Land in Midtown Global. Sorry, I can't remember what I paid but it never seemed too unreasonable.

      I get them at Seward, in the meat case next to the butcher counter. They usually are in about 3 lb packs, and around $2 per pound, if I remember correctly. They are from Hill and Vale, and pretty tasty last time I made them. I don't remember seeing them fresh or frozen at clancy's, but I bet they would have them in back if you ask.

        I got some frozen at hackenmueller's recently and they were pretty pricey there -- 6 bucks for 4 pieces. they were just okay, not as good as what I got from the co-op.

          Everette's always have them in stock frozen, either with or without the bone. I think the quality is great, and they're very inexpensive, around $2.29 lb.
