This is the easiest oxtail soup I have ever made, it taste like a gourmet version of beef and vegetable soup. It's the ultimate winter comfort food with so little effort!

Thankyou that is a beautiful soup. For the last half hour i turned the heat off and covered the pot,letting the heat from the bones finish the soup off.and i saved some money on the gas!
