Wait until it says “HOT” (takes roughly 8 minutes). This prevents the oxtail from sticking to the pot.
Add 1 tbsp (15ml) olive oil in Instant Pot.
Season one side generously with salt & black pepper.
Add in the larger pieces of oxtails, then brown each side for 5 minutes.
While one side is browning, season the other side with more salt & black pepper.
*Pro Tip: We are just browning the larger pieces of oxtails to save time from browning a second batch.
