These rounds of beefy goodness will soon become your best friend in the kitchen.May weintroduce to you the Oxtail. Before you panic, they're notfrom actual Oxen, unlike the olden days. Like all great things, Oxtail comes from humble begins just like the tomato. Oxtail was seen as a poor mans food, because of its lack of meat butmeat is not what makes this cut an unsung hero! Oxtaildoesn't usually star as the king of a dish but rather work quietly in the background of stocks, soups and stews adding a ton of flavour layers, providing a rich thick gelatinous body which gives dishes a whole new dimension of depth.

I love the little squid tubes including tentacles (the best part, am I right?) that we get from Dan at Soul Fish in Coolum. Caught locally, they are sweet and tender. Generally speaking, Squid needs to be cooked really quickly or really long and slow to stay tender. I was originally thinking that we would slow cook these in the red sauce, in the oven for a long period. However, the Sunday Brains Trust suggested that given the Squid's relatively thin diameter that we might be able to cook them on the BBQ quick enough to not make them tough but long enough to cook the pork stuffing through.
There was a long-standing restaurant in Noosaville called Rosie's, run by husband and wife Larry and Rosie.
