Place oxtail back in the pan and add the red wine and cognac then reduce by half 8. Add the stock and bring to the boil 9. Cover with a greaseproof paper cartouche and cook on a low heat for 4 hours (add water if stock reduces below the shin) 10. Once cooked, remove shin and reduce the sauce until thick 11. Pick shin, season and add back 10% of the weight of the sauce 12. Roll meat into 60g balls in cling film, ensuring it is round and no crinkles
