Yum, jp. We love oxtail soup. Here's the recipe we love in our house:

KATIE’S FAVORITE OXTAIL SOUP
(Serves 4)
2 lbs. oxtails, cut into 1-in. pieces
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (16-oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (10-oz.) can condensed beef broth or equivalent quantity of homemade broth
cup water
cup dry red wine
1 tsp. granulated sugar
tsp. salt
tsp. freshly ground black pepper
tsp. dried thyme, bruised
1 bay leaf
4 medium carrots, peeled and cut into julienned strips
4 medium parsnips, peeled and cut into julienned strips
cup frozen peas

Trim visible fat from oxtails and dust with flour. In a soup pot or Dutch oven, brown oxtails in hot oil. Add onion, tomatoes with juice, beef broth, water, wine, sugar, salt, pepper, thyme, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 2 hours or until meat is just tender. Skim off excess fat. Add carrots and parsnips; cover and simmer for 25 minutes. Add peas; cook about 5 minutes or until peas are heated through. Serve immediately.

Guess we were posting together, kitchenelf.

Thanks to both of you I will make it tommorrow can't wait. I had had it a couple of times as a kid in Germany but don't remember the taste. I hear it it's rich and flavorful.

OOPs! Just noticed recipe includes parsnips don't have any and can't get them where I live anyway. Any decent substitute? Cant get turnips either.

You probably don't even need to include the parsnips.

JP, you can leave the parsnips out, but the soup won't be as good. Make it again when you have them.

jpm - if you ever get your hands on parsnips buy them and plan on making this soup. Parsnips will impart a flavor that just won't be there otherwise...BUT, without them it will still be wonderful!!!! This is probably a silly question since you can't get either parsnips or turnips - BUT, can you get celeriac? That may work as a "substitute" but NOTHING will compare to a parsnip.

Local fare here is Chicken Booyah, which strangely enough includes oxtails! It is fabulous, but chicken based. Katie, your soup sounds amazing. I can get parsnips and oxtails here, so I think it'll go on the grocery list. Thanks!
