Ox-tail Apple Soup

Submitted by on January 9, 2009 – 10:08 amNo Comment | 6,794 views

Soup Name:  Oxtail and apple soup
Traditional Chinese Name: 牛尾蘋果湯 (niu wei píng guǒ tāng)

This soup is high in protein and fiber.  It is sweet and tangy and incredibly healthy to drink and eat.  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 apples have melted into the soup.

What Ingredients are required?

1 or 2 fresh oxtails
10 – 12 fresh mcintosh apples
3 large dried dates
5-6 pieces of dried scallop

1 teaspooon of salt (to marinate the ox-tail)

How do I prepare it?

  1. Mix salt and ox-tail together and let sit in a bag for at least an hour (best overnight)
  2. Wash ox-tail in cool running water
  3. Start boiling your water soup and add the dried dates
  4. In a separate pot, blanch the oxtail and strain it to remove any dirt and debris from the blanching
  5. Add the oxtail and conpoy to the boiling water of your soup
  6. Wash and chop the apples and add to your 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 high in fiber and is ideal for children as it is very natural and they can eat the apples!

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.
