Mix flour, chile, salt and pepper and coat oxtails well. In a hot
stock pot, coat bottom with oil and sear oxtails until all sides are
browned. Pull out oxtails and wipe out stock pot. Saute onions,
fennel, celery, carrots, garlic, ginger and lemon grass. Deglaze with
wine and reduce. Add tomatoes, soy, thyme and bay. Add water to
completely cover meat. Check for seasoning; the broth should taste
well seasoned. Bring to boil then simmer on low heat for 3 hours. The
meat should fall off of the bone. Remove oxtails and reduce sauce by
20 percent. Using a hand blender, puree sauce. Check for seasoning.
Serve on top of polenta. For the Preserved Lemon Polenta: In a
saucepan, saute shallots and ginger in 1 tablespoon of butter. Add
polenta, lemons, stock, salt, pepper and butter. Check for seasoning.
Stir well and cover tightly. Bake in 400 degree oven for 1 hour. A
crust will form. Break through crust for polenta. This recipe yields
4 servings. Source: "EAST MEETS WEST with Ming Tsai - (Show # MT-1A29)
