Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Hi Graeme

Rabo de Bol is what you want but i have only seen it in butchers and not in the supermarkets.

Not rabo de bol. Try rabo de boi (pronounced boy). Both Oxtail stew and soup are popular dishes here.

I will ask our butcher tomorrow at the market. However he was unable to let me have beef suet, even though he understood exactly what I meant when I described it. Perhaps beef carcases come to him with bits missing. With pigs it is the opposite and he has on display heads, trotters, cheek (one of the best cuts of pork IMHO) and ears.

He confirmed that butchers who buy their meat direct from the abattoir (as he does) have oxtail. He showed me a bucket containing a cow hoof with a bit of leg attached and some offal.
