Oxtail and vegetable soup

Submitted by on January 8, 2009 – 12:40 pmNo Comment | 13,696 views

Soup Name: Oxtail and vegetable soup
Traditional Chinese Name: 牛尾湯 (niu wei tāng)

Introduction:
This healthy and hearty soup is perfect during cold winter months and is a (low carb) meal all by itself.

It contains no chinese herbs or additives and is very easy to make with fresh local market ingredients.   Change up the vegetables based on fresh local produce and create your own soup with your personal favourites.

It is best eaten after it has been boiled for a long time (2 hours) or when the beef is tender and falling off the bones and the onions have melted into the soup.

What Ingredients are required?

1 or 2 fresh oxtails
1 large onion
1 head of cabbage
2 large carrots
2 tomatoes
2 stalks of celery

How do I prepare it?

  1. Start boiling your water soup
  2. In a separate pot, blanch the oxtail and strain it to remove any dirt and debris from the blanching
  3. Add the oxtail to the boiling water of your soup
  4. Wash all the vegetables
  5. Peel the onion, carrots, and celery
  6. Chop all vegetables into large pieces abd add to the soup
  7. Boil together for at least 60-90 minutes on high heat.  The longer you boil it, the tastier the soup.  It is best eaten with the beef is falling off the bones.

Any benefits?

  • This soup is highly nutritious and derives its benefits from the ingredients used.

Any precautions?

  • Oxtail is not considered a lean cut of beef.   You may choose to use a strainer to remove the top layer of fat from the soup and to remove fat from the beef before eating.  Or just eat in moderation.
