Oxtail Soup

all time fav in hawaii

3 lbs. oxtail cut in sections & trimmed of all fat
1/2 cup raw peanuts, blanched
1 medium onion, chopped
2 carrots, peeled & sliced
2 stalks celery, chopped
8-10 dried black mushrooms
1 small piece dried orange peel
1 slice ginger, crushed
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup liquor (dry white wine, brandy, or whiskey)
Salt & pepper to taste

Garnish
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 bunch Chinese parsley, chopped

Rehydrate mushrooms in hot water for 30-45 minutes. Drain & slice.
Parboil oxtail for 5 minutes. Drain.
Add all ingredients except garnish and simmer with oxtail until oxtail is tender (about 2 to 3 hrs.) in as much water as desired.

My mother had us over Sunday and we had oxtail soup - I just love the stuff! She makes a much more basic version than you and does it in a pressure cooker. I'm in the process of trying to find a reasonable butcher shop to buy from. Local store wants $5/# with a minimum 30# order.

Ok, having braised oxtails in chianti I see now that the meat does just sluff off the bones.
Wow those ox tails are intensely beefy!

I'm not where I can get at it, but I have what we consider an awesome oxtail soup recipe. I'll try to post it tomorrow. When I make it, there's never any left.

We love oxtails here and I'm fortunate to have found a local mom-and-pop butcher shop that has fantastic ones.

I've never made oxtail soup before, but I always put oxtail in my crab soup.
Oxtail adds a great deep rich flavor that I've never been able to find with beef cubes or beef bones. I just wish they were a bit less expensive ( about $4.00 a lb here)

Oh, John, I wish I could send you some of the huge, meaty ones I get from our butcher for $1.99 per pound.

Thanks for the recipe, I love oxtails. Katie E, that's a great price. Last time I wanted to buy some they were $4.99 lb, with not much meat on them.

I would think that beef broth and particularly oxtail would overwhelm the delicate flavor of crab.
