Chinese style oxtail Soup Recipes


Simple Oxtail Soup, by thewoksoflife.comThis oxtail soup recipe is so simple and easy that I am a little embarrassed to even publish it. But Sarah loves it, and said that we should, so I’m going to listen to the boss. :)

For a lot of Chinese families, dinner isn’t complete without a soup to go with it. I was thinking about making soup the other day, and oxtails were what I had on hand. While making an entire pot of soup every night may sound daunting, this particular soup recipe is exactly the kind of thing that demonstrates just how easy it is! There are only six ingredients (two of which are simply water and salt).

Simple Oxtail Soup, by thewoksoflife.comChinese soups in general are brothier and lighter than some of the heavier soups you see in Western cooking, and they’re also very nourishing! In this particular recipe, onions and turnips round out the meaty flavor of the oxtails, and the result is a balanced, surprisingly light, and subtle soup. There really aren’t any special cooking techniques to speak of either––just time and patience. All you need to do is skim the fat off the top of the resulting liquid.

Okay, you’ll need:

While the oxtails are roasting, add 12 cups of water to a stockpot. Add the onions and roasted oxtails, and bring to a boil.

Immediately turn the heat down to a very low simmer. (Avoid letting the heat get to high, or you’ll boil off all your liquid!).

Simmer for about 6 hours (the longer the better) with the lid covered. Remember to skim off the fat periodically.

About 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve, add the turnips. Simmer until tender, and salt the soup to taste. Serve, garnished with chopped cilantro.
