    Grace Lynn's Note:

    This broth is so flavorful and so authentic. It tastes sort of like the Vietnamese "Pho" beef noodle soup. The only thing missing is the star anise. This will make you look like a seasoned-cultured cook!

      I didn't care for this soup. The spice flavors were a bit off for me. My DH, on the other hand, liked it hence the three star rating.

      I made this soup in my crockpot, simmering it on low for about 15 hours before straining - it was outstanding! I added the garlic and ginger and simmered another hour. If you have the opportunity to make oxtail soup, MAKE THIS! I'll be using it for years to come. Thank you, Grace Lynn!
