Everything so far (purée, meat and meat juices) can be easily prepared beforehand, even 2 or 3 days before, and kept in sealed containers in the frige.
Stage 8 - 5 min.
Assemble the Parmentier:
Preheat oven to 410°F (210°C). In small individual dishes or a family one, put a layer of oxtail meat. Pour over a tablespoon of meat juices.
Stage 9 - 3 min.
Add a good layer of purée to cover the meat completely.
Stage 10 - 3 min. Stage 11 - 30 min.
Put in the oven until the top is nicely browned.
Oxtail is a really delightful and cheap meat, but which needs long cooking. It is this slow stewing which develops its flavour and gives this "confit" look.
If you have meat left over from this, you can enjoy it cold, in vinaigrette, mixed with a green salad and herbs, it's a treat.
