Lasse Oxtail Stew

Gourmet chef Lasse Sorensen, owner of Tom’s Place in DeSoto, learns a new cooking “trick” in this segment. Martine Jackson, a local attorney and frequent customer at Tom’s Place, teaches Sorensen how to prepare one of her favorite dishes, Oxtail Stew. Oxtails are a popular ingredient in many of the national dishes in Sorensen’s native country of Denmark, but Jackson’s spicier version is inspired by Caribbean traditions. Sorensen, whose original presentation techniques have earned him the nickname “The Vertical Chef”, presents the final dish with typical panache. Jackson continues the Caribbean theme by sharing some great ideas for delicious side dishes to complement the stew. View the recipe here.
