Mama's Oxtail Tail Soup

How about a nice pot of soup....
and tonight we have one of our childhood favorites ..

" Mama's Oxtail Soup "

Went to my local butcher,
selected a tail in whole and had them slice it to preferred size

Basic soup ingredients

  • oxtail
  • tomato
  • celery
  • corn
  • potato -waxy ( starchy ones seems to just fall apart and thicken the soup)
  • garlic
  • salt + white pepper
  • sour cream
  • oyster sauce

1. Heat water in stock pot, bring to a boil
2. Par-boil oxtail for 2 minutes then rinse with water
3. Add all ingredients to the boiling water, bring it back to a boil then simmer on med-low heat for 1 1/2 - 2 hours- now isn't that easy!

Look at this bowl of goodness!
Each spoonful of hearty vegetables just melts in your mouth
and the oxtail meat almost falls off the bone.
Had oyster sauce for dipping on the side and a dollop of sour cream-yum!
This soup gets better the next day, add some rice and you 'll have a stew like soup.
My appetite just perked up from posting this !

This looks delish! I've not had oxtail soup in ages. Campbell's used to have this flavor but I don't see it anymore. Can't compare with homemade though. Homemade is more healthy and delicious any time!

i am always happy eating oxtail soup. It's so cheap, cooked well, it'd be nice tender and sticky. Yummy! It's one of the indonesian traditional cuisine too.

Great that your mum told you about this. Oxtail is so underrated in Western world, but it's one of the expensive cut in Indonesia.
