1
Season the oxtail pieces with a good helping of salt and pepper, then dust with flour. Sear in a hot pan with some lard or olive oil until browned all over
2
Remove the oxtail from the pan and set aside. Add the pancetta, onion, diced celery, carrot and garlic to the pan and sauté until soft
3
Add the cinnamon, herbs and tomato purée to the pan and stir for 1 minute. Deglaze with the red wine, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon
4
Add the seared oxtail to the pan and let the wine reduce by half. Add the tinned tomatoes, lengths of celery and enough stock to cover the oxtail
5
Simmer on a low heat with the lid on for 3–4 hours, until the meat is falling away from the bones. Be sure to check on it occasionally, adding more stock if the meat starts to stick to the pan
6
Taste, season with salt and pepper and stir in the cocoa powder, if using. Pick out and discard the cinnamon stick and rosemary and thyme stalks
7
Serve on a bed of polenta sprinkled with raisins, pine nuts and some of the leaves reserved from the celery sticks
