Oxtail Soup Recipe – How to cook budget friendly oxtail for a cheap comfort dinner meal – with the video tutorial.
Oxtail Soup Recipe
This oxtail soup recipe makes a warming comfort meal that’s perfect to slowly cook over a couple of days and then enjoy a hearty bowl full of soup with meltingly tender meat.
It’s such an easy dish to prepare – simply brown the oxtail, in batches if need be. Then, saute onion and garlic until golden, add back the browned oxtail and pour over water to cover.
Allow the oxtail to simmer for a few hours, remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.
I find that leaving the oxtail overnight develops flavor and results in tender, falling of the bone meat.
The following day, remove the fat layer from the top of the oxtail and then bring it back up to the simmer. Bubble gently for a few hours until the meat is tender to your liking.
There’s a whole host of vegetables you could add to your soup. I simply opt for chopped broccoli, but here are some other ideas for vegetables to include in your soup, depending on your tastes and dietary requirements:
