Elecia, As Emeril would say 'Get your own show'! Geez people, can't we just all get along? BTW...onions cook down and if you like less, use less, more use more. The same with butter. People kill me with their criticism. Paula Deen, you are still my hero and I've never heard you say anything bad about anyone. Keep doing what you do! You and your family are wonderful.

Hey Ann Bullock! Yes, it's a whole stick. You wouldn't want to do that everyday, but this is for a "butter rice" that goes so nicely with the oxtails. Of course, make it your own if you like less butter. It will still be fantastic!

Hey S! When Paula says broiling pan, she is referring to the bottom part of what you would traditionally think of as a broiler pan. Basically just a deep oven safe pan.

I'm confused why they tell us to use a "broiler pan." Aren't those the ones with the slots?

Two Onions is actually no to many Onions. You should use smaller onions if you are using two, or ONE big one. You do put the tails in the pan with water, and you don't have to use a broiling pan with the slots. If you do, you don't use the slotted par of the pan. That is only used when grilling in the broiler. Since this recipe isn't specific about the quantity of the seasonings, I would use a different recipe, or follow the recommended amount on the seasoning bottle. You can get Oxtails in the meat section of the grocery store and if they're not there, get them from your local butcher. I actually think a whole stick of butter is WAAAY too much! I would use only 1/2 a stick at the most but I also like "I can't believe it's not Butter" Spray liquid. It's fat free and no calories and when used in sauces and rice, it's fabulous and not greasy. For 2 cups of dried rice and 4 cups of water, I would use about a 1/4 cup of liquid butter spray. I'm making Oxtails today actually, an I use a Lipton Onion Soup Packet! I put the tails in a pot with the soup packet and water, bring to a boil and then put them in the Crock pot on High for a few hours(till they're falling off the bone...mmm..mmmm..good! There's my 2 cents! ~Home chef in SF

Couple things: This seems like WAY to much onions. Anybody else feel like using 2 large onions was a lot? This may be a stupid question, but do you put the oxtails in the pan filled with water? Or do you put the oxtails on the top slotted pan? The picture on the website makes it appear that oxtails were actually looked in the pan filled with water. How do you know how much you need to season with the house seasoning and soy sauce?
