  1. In a 6 quart dutch oven or larger, add washed oxtails, bay leaves, boullion cubes and wine. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight to marinate.
  2. When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 350*F. Remove oxtails from wine and pat dry. Bring cast iron or other heavy skillet up to medium high heat. Add olive oil. Season beef with kosher salt and pepper to taste. In batches, sear oxtails on all sides until well browned about 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bring wine up to a boil over medium high heat and reduce heat to simmer. Place browned oxtails back into dutch oven and bake cook until tender- about 4 hours. Add carrots, celery, onions and mushrooms during the last 45 minutes of cook time and liquid is reduced by 2/3. Move some of contents of pot to side and whisk in ketchup. Baste oxtails in sauce for last 15 minutes. Skim off excess fat . Serve with polenta, rice, couscous or crusty bread for the 'gravy'.
