I've never had oxtail. I'm not sure if I would like it or not, but there are few things that I don't like. Your pictures sure make it look tasty!

Your linguine dish looks really superb! Your breadcrumbs almost look like bacon bits.... it's probably just the lighting. YUMMO!

thank you VB. not bacon, those are bread crumbs that are seasoned and toasted with butter in a frying pan.

For the noodles, butter, garlic powder, italian seasoning and a little salt.

I rinsed the chops under cold water, then patted dry. They are just seasoned with salt, garlic powder and italian seasoning... no breading. I browned them in the pan and added the soup... no seasoning to that. There was enough with the seasoned chops.

do you add anything to the soup, milk or water to loosen it up into a gravy? it looks great and i use cream of mushroom soup for gravies and to cook things in and i am never sure if i should add something to loosen it up. so i wind up adding burgundy wine!! LOL if in doubt ............ add wine teehee.

Its called ox tail but usually its beef tail. It is a tough cut but when cooked for a long time they get tender and tasty!
