This is another old family recipe. You may have seen the disgusting looking, cheap oxtails at the grocery. This is a good way to use them. It make a wonderful, rich, meaty broth which is wonderful on a cold, winter day.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs oxtails
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 -5 potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 12-1 head cabbage (1/2 large head)
  • frozen vegetables, of your choice (we usually used mixed veggies with corn, limas, green beans, etc.)
  • 12 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 12 teaspoon dried thyme

Directions

  1. Boil meat in stock pot with water for 10 minutes and then drain off water.
  2. Cut up onion and put with ox-tail.
  3. Cover with 8 cups water.
  4. Boil for 1 hour.
  5. Take out meat.
  6. Add tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage and frozen veggies (no need to thaw).
  7. Cut meat off bones and return meat to soup.
  8. Boil another hour.
