Because BJ and Stephanie Robinson of Robinson Ranch are located deep in the Midwest, it was abundantly clear the recipe I needed to create would be in honor of a regional culinary specialty, with a few twists to make it Robinson Ranch's very own. So let's enjoy some runza!
Oxtails! For this particular recipe, I had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with a 1st Generation family cattle ranch out of Newcastle, Nebraska, the Robinson Ranch. Their cattle are raised using sustainable, low-stress practices and you can truly taste the quality in the finished beef.
I have to share with you just where these beautiful cuts of beef came from. In the recent collaboration I did with Robinson Ranch Beef, a first-generation family cattle ranch located in Newcastle, Nebraska, Ranchers BJ and Stephanie Robinson
Short ribs. They are such an incredibly flavorful cut of beef. Look at all the amazing marbling and that remarkable protein structure. There's connective tissue, fat and that coupled with your great cooking will make for a chili that's rich, thick, and full of beefy flavor.
This recipe is a classic. It's straightforward and full of texture and flavor. The steak is highlighted by simple salt and pepper. The buttery-ness of the crust is driven by the delicious use of Ritz crackers. Trust me when I say you need to try this little recipe! Serve it with or without the gravy! Your choice. If you serve it without the gravy, try squeezing some lemon wedges, the bright, fresh juice for an added delicious twist is wonderful!
