Oxtail Soup

Hello Everyone!

Long time, no post, huh? I know. I know. But I have been super busy with other (paying) things in my life lol. But to make up for lost time, I am going to post a bunch of different recipes within the next few days. Well...that't the plan anyway. But you know how plans go. (Haha)

I recently got a request from Marina for an oxtail recipe. So here is my granny's recipe for Oxtail Soup.

Oxtail Soup

Soup ingredients:
3 pounds oxtail
1/2 lb carrots, sliced
1 large onion, chopped
4 cups water / 3 cups water and 1 cup beef stock
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
2 tablespoon tomato paste
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bay leaf crumbled
Flour dumplings

Dumplings ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Method for dumplings:
Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and slowly add enough cold water to make a stiff dough. ( a sticky dough makes a soft, pasty dumpling) Knead in the bowl or on a lightly floured board until smooth. Shape into small balls that fit in the palm of your hand and flatten in the palm of one hand by using karate-like chops with the other hand.

Method for soup:
Clean the oxtails, trim away any excess fat, and cut into 2-inch pieces. Combine all ingredients, except the dumplings, in a large heavy saucepan. Cover and simmer for 2 hours. Add water if necessary, Stir, add the dumplings, and return to low heat for 20 minutes.
