Regime Type:

Without Eggs, PKD (With Allowances)

Oxtail Munchies

Introduction & Inspiration

These little buns are packed with flavour and nutrients. They hold their shape well, and yet have a nice soft interior. They have a great PKD ratio as well. Who knew that oxtail could marry so nicely with sour cherries! They are ideal as a healthy light meal when you're on the go, especially while out hiking or on a day trip.

I hope you'll give them a try.

40g Beef Crackling

Recipe Instructions

In a pan on low heat, add the oxtail leftovers and warm them up a little.


Once the oxtail is warm, place it in a mini blender, together with the warm beef crackling and the sour cherries (if you have not just made the beef crackling, then heat it up first too).


Blend the mixture until the beef crackling is reduced to small bits and all the ingredients are well combined together.


Place the mixture from the blender into a bowl. If you would like a slight sweetness to the buns, add a little honey (optional) and mix in.


Grease 4 of the small circular holes of a silicone baking mould with the lard.


Use a spatula and divide the mixture equally between the four holes, and then use the spatula to smooth the tops of each bun off.


Decorate the tops of each bun with sour cherries and little circles of lard (optional).


Once the mixture has fully cooled, cover the tray with clingfilm and place the Oxtail Munchies in the fridge, to set fully.


Once the Oxtail Munchies have set, remove them from the silicone mould, place them on a serving plate and enjoy!


Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge.


Ideally, purchase your meat and fat from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free.


These buns taste great both savoury and slightly sweet. They are also really handy for taking on picnics or while out hiking and can be made slightly smaller for a good party food option.


Any fruit or honey should be of organic quality, and are only recommended in small quantities for those who have recovered from any kind of health condition.
