Default Ox Tails

We went to the local butcher shop to pick up our Thanksgiving turkey
this morning and were planning to pick up something for our Sunday
dinner. My wife was thinking about steaks, but I spotted a package of ox
tails and they were actually a pretty good price. Around here they
usually run A$10-12 for package of 3-4 bony pieces so we would have to
buy two. This package has close to a dozen pieces, all of them nice and
meaty. She is going to cook them up this afternoon and we will have
them for supper tomorrow.

I love oxtail soup. The last ones I bought were quite meaty.

Oxtail soup is good, but oxtail stew is even better.

what's the difference? Do you have different recipes for each? My
oxtail soup has many stew ingredients, it is just not as thick

Good question. It is thicker. It is served on the bone.
BTW... I think I exaggerated the number, but it remains enough for us to
have a really good feed, maybe even leftovers. That is much better than
having to buy two packs at $10-12 each and not having enough to bother
going to all that work.

I can see how that recipe would come about naturally. Cooked oxtail
broth gels up so firmly.

Oh, I always brown then cool the oxtails. I add them back to the kettle
and cook them down but I do remove the bones before making soup or stew
with them. I despise having to fish bones out of a bowl of something
I'm eating.
