How To Make Vegan Oxtails

There is no way anyone could tell the difference between this plant-based version and an animal version. The texture, the flavor, the appearance, the aroma. I challenge any meat eater who make Jamaican or Caribbean oxtails. Guaranteed if this recipe doesn't taste better it certain tastes the same at the very least.
3ea King oyster Mushrooms (approximately 9oz, halved seasoned & Roasted & Shredded)
Recommended seasoning for mushrooms:
     1/2t Onion powder
     1/2t Garlic Powder
     1t Liquid Smoke
     1/2t Chili Powder
     1/2t Paprika
     1T Canola oil
     2T Water
     1/4t Salt
     1/4t Pepper
1ea White Onions (large, caramelized)
1-1/2c Frozen Spinach
1ea Beefless Bouillon Cube (1T vegetable bouillon)
3/4c Water or vegetable broth (low sodium)
2c Vital Wheat Gluten
1t Baking Powder
9ea Rice Paper (divided, two cut into strips)
Blend spinach, caramelized onions, bouillon cube, and water (or vegetable broth) in blender until smooth. In a large bowl add vital wheat gluten and baking powder and mix until combined.  Mix in spinach puree until combined and form seitan dough into a ball and allow to rest 10 minutes. Divide dough into thirds and proceed as directed in video.
You can store uncooked Oxtail* cut wrapped tightly in plastic up to 5 days in refrigerator. If you desire to freeze the mock meat, pre-cut your portions and partially cook by way of baking 15 minutes or steaming 15 minutes, allow to cool and store in freezer safe container for up to a month. When you cook your mock meat be sure to bring the internal temperature up to 165 F for food safety.


  1. Looks good. Where is the video that's mentioned in this vegan oxtail post?


    2. Thank you very much for writing such an interesting article on this topic. This has really made me think and I hope to read more. Food

  2. I'm confused! How is it vegan oxtails? Where do I get vegan oxtails? I see the recipe but how does the oxtail incorporate into this?

  3. It's vegan, why would there be oxtail in's a play on words

  4. It's mock meat ladies. Except you make it at home and flavor it like oxtails would taste

  5. Looks good. Where is the video?

    1. She has a YouTube channel. The videos are there.

  6. Forget how to make em, I wanna know how to order them📬

  7. YouTube video for these:

  8. Is there an alternative for the viral wheat gluten (allergy to wheat)?

    1. I found this handy reference sheet for a GF vital wheat gluten substitute:
      I haven't tried any yet.. so I hope they work!

  9. Hello Korenn me and my girl was trying to make the dough mixture and it came out really gummy like. It wasn't as soft as yours. Any suggestions?

  10. I made these for Shabbat and the family really liked them. I'm want to do away with using gluten and can't wait to try you chickpea mock meat. Thank you for sharing your recipes and techniques!

  11. It is a shame you don't put the entire recipe online. Your instructional video lacks amounts needed and what the heck are your "favorite spices" and how much of each go into it. Very poor instructions and so disappointing as I want to make this but it is virtually impossible for me to do it without better instructions. I hope your other recipes are more complete.

    1. The time you took to write this review could have been spent thoroughly reading the video notes and instructions.

    2. No she's right
      And some people are hard of hearing and or bad eye
      It is 2 fast and ends up being vauge and difficult
      Some people don't know how to roast garlic they.May think you buy it roasted and its not said how much
      in other posts and videos no specific
      if you don't want to give your recipes why bother at all.?
      Btw Im a long time professional V head Chef
      I saw a video and was curious
      Learned nothing new or better but others need
      And specific amounts and
      slow down

  12. Hi

    Cooking when trying to lose body fat can Be tricky, we all know that. But today I got good news for you!

    My friends Karine Losier and Dave Ruel spent the past year or so crafting the perfect "metabolic" recipe book.

    I highly recommend this for your kitchen if you want to get leaner, do it faster, and have it taste BETTER than ever:

    My TOP Fatloss Recipe Book <--- see how tasty


    What is "metabolic cooking"?

    Simply stated, it's a unique way of preparing food that combines nutrients specifically geared for melting off body fat FASTER than normal.

    Here's what I really love about Metabolic Cooking:

    1. The recipes are made from foods with a high Metabolic Thermo-Charge; more calories burned faster without losing taste...

    2. They structured the cookbooks around their incredibly helpful "Metabolic Nutri-Profile"... makes it SUPER easy to use...

    3. It's been specifically designed to fight the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon: That is what happens when you are on a dietplan and you all of a sudden stop dropping bodyfat!

    Taste, ease, and metabolism-boosting power.

    You need nothing more. The BEST recipes for faster fat loss <--- Yummy recipes to melt bodyfat

    Talk to you soon,


  13. I appreciate the recipe and the alternative suggestion of portobello mushroom. Is it possible to use jackfruit instead of mushroom? It also provides that meaty, string like texture. Thanks for any assistance.

  14. I absolutely love these vegan oxtail. They are possibly my favorite meal of all time. The flavors are wonderful and the oxtail are so much like the real thing that I had a bit of a hesitancy the first time I bit into them. Thanks for providing this, and your other, amazing recipes.
