    CoolMonday's Note:

    This is a soup my mother fixed often when I was a child. It's not easy to find oxtails but the search is definitely worth it. I had a friend once who bought a side of beef and was going to throw away the tail. I snatched them out of her hand and hugging them to my chest, ran home and made oxtail soup. I brought her a bowl and after much hesitation she tried it. That was the last time she gave me these choice bones.

      wow! Great taste. The only change I made was to coat oxtails in flour and brown them on all sides before putting them in the crockpot. A definite keeper!

      I found the recipe needed some spicing up so I added 1step beef flavoring, onion powder & garlic powder, regular black pepper, basil, & parsley.

      I absolutely adore this recipe!!! I have been looking longingly at the oxtails in my supermarket, remembering the soup my friend's mother used to make for me upon request. I finally have a recipe, so I can actually buy them now!!! I do recommend refrigerating the soup, skimming the hardened fat off, then reheating...But SO YUMMY!!!
