Lusog Notes

This tasty dish is high in iron needed in the formation of red blood cells that distribute oxygen to the rest of the body. It is also high in vitamin A which is important for normal vision and healthy skin.

Chef's Tip

After dipping the oxtail in flour, tap them over a bowl to remove excess flour. Flour helps the browning of the meat but too much flour will burn in the pan as you are frying.
