Oxtail Menudo (Menudo Sulipeña)

Oxtail menudo is a Spanish dish called “Menudo Sulipeña”. Most dishes we have now have Spanish influence and this is one of them. What very interesting is the ingredients are readily available locally and you don’t need to find a Spanish specialty shop to buy the ingredients. But since oxtail are expensive, there is a nice alternative that you can substitute with oxtail. You can purchase ox skin in a wet market or meat shop that also sell ox tripe. You can substitute a kilo of oxtail with 600 grams of ox skin with 1/4 kilo of lean beef.
