January 25, 2024

Chinese oxtail soup is a delicious and hearty dish. Here's a simple recipe:

- 2 lbs oxtail, cut into segments
- 1 large onion, peeled and quartered
- 2 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
- 2 stalks celery, cut into chunks
- 5 slices of ginger
- 4 cloves of garlic, peeled
- 2 star anise
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 4-5 dried bay leaves

- Soy sauce, to taste
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Green onions and cilantro, for garnish

1. Blanch the oxtail: Boil water in a large pot. Add the oxtail and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse the oxtail under cold water to remove any impurities.

2. Cook the soup: In a clean pot, combine the blanched oxtail, onion, carrots, celery, ginger, garlic, star anise, cinnamon stick, and bay leaves. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 2-3 hours until the oxtails are tender.

3. Season the soup: Remove the oxtail and vegetables from the soup. Strain the soup to remove any solids. Return the soup to the pot and season with soy sauce, salt, and black pepper to taste.

4. Serve: Place some oxtail and vegetables in a bowl. Pour the hot soup over them. Garnish with green onions and cilantro. Serve hot.

Enjoy your Chinese oxtail soup!
