    Ox tail soup/stew.

    As a boy I used to love ox tail soup so I thought I'd give it a go.
    Went to one of the local slaughter houses (more of a hut) and bought the tail.
    Weghed in at 2 kg 300 gm. Probably about 500 grammes of meat if I'm lucky.
    160 baht!
    Anyway, as a young boy I used to 'bone and roll' pigs for a living.
    Here's a few snaps of the tail, before and after.

    Looks like I've still got my 'boning' skills.

    Please continue quickly - I'm already salivating.

    Oxtail is absolutely delicious - so full of flavour.

    Can't wait to see your end result.

    Bones seasoned in flour, sea salt and black pepper.
    Browned off ( not as much as the cow) in olive oil for 5 mins...

    After 5 minutes, take the tails from the pan and add a few ingredients.
    I used. Red onion, 4 crushed garlic cloves, bay leaves, black pepper and a cup of red wine.

    Bring to the boil and then simmer for about 2 and a half hours...
    I'm about 30 mins into this part, so I'll probably be posting tomorrow with the results.

    P.S. Top up the pan to cover the tails.

    I intend to periodically skim the surface and after cooking, when cool, I will place in the fridge overnight and de-fat the contents in the morning...If that makes any sense!


    Dillie. Anus successfully removed, fancy a plate?

    Well, what can I say. That must have been one of the oldest cows in Thailand.
    Simmered for about 5 hours and then put it in the oven for another couple of hours.
    Result...Half decent soup, not a patch on Heinz oxtail.
    Never again!

    Good effort though, looks nice!

    Personally I could have skipped the first few pics myself, I'm one if those squeamish types that doesn't much like seeing where my food actually comes from.

    Am i right in assuming you have left over hair and a cows bottom?



    Rather than throw them away, are you open to suggestions?


    Shame about the soup.

    Good effort. I love a bit of ox tail soup too. I'll keep that first pic out of my memory next time I eat it though.

    I tried it once as well, long time ago, with the local crap. Well, not soup as such. Never again. Terrible.

    oxtail is a fav of mine, though i would never eat Thai beef(Zebu)its more African in origin and eats hay for six months of the year.

    Try getting it from makro etc next time.

    So the soup was a failure.

    What about the Jack and Danny?
