Ox Tail & White Radish Soup

It’s a dish that I have wanted to try for a long time. It’s a time-consuming soup, which requires 5 hours. But I guarantee you its cooking method is simple and the soup is very nice.

  1. Prepare the ox tail. Wash them in water to rinse off the blood.
  2. Put all the ox tail into a deep pot. Add in enough water covers the tail.
  3. Turn to high heat. Bring it to boil. Take all the oxtail out. Wash in water again. To remove all the dirt.
  4. Place all the oxtail into the pot again. This time, add in much more water, cos we need to cook it for hours.
  5. High heat first, skim the soup to remove all the dirt. Turn to low heat and simmer for 2 hours.
  6. After 2 hours, skim the soup again to remove the fat.
  7. Lid on and simmer for another 1 hour.
  8. Prepare white radish and cut into chunks. Put all the radish into the soup. Simmer for another 1 hour. Radish will absorb the flavor.
  9. Season with salt and black pepper.

After 4 hours cooking, the meat can easily fall off the bone. Very soft and juicy.

Sprinkle some green onion to garnish.
