Ingedients :
  • 2 lbs. oxtail
  • 3 inches of ginger, unpeeled but smashed
  • 3 nutmeg seeds, roughly broken
  • 20 cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 3 carrots, halved and chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 leeks, chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 scallion, chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 medium all-purpose potatoes, chopped into 8 chunks each
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup chopped celery, with leaves.
  • fried shallots
  • 1 Tbsp butter or vegetable oil
Directions :
  1. Fill a large pot with enough water to cover the oxtail generously and add the ginger. Bring the water to a boil, add the oxtail, and boil for three minutes. Pour out the water and discard the ginger. Refill the pot (still with the oxtail) with cold water and bring to a boil. Add the cloves and nutmeg, and simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 hours until the meat is tender. Remove from heat, cool completely, and refridgerate overnight. Skim the congealed fat from the surface.
  2. Bring the soup back to a simmer. Heat butter/oil in a pan over medium heat, add carrot, leek, and scallion and saute for 3 minutes, then add to the soup along with the potatoes, pepper, and salt to taste. Cover and simmer for twenty minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Ladle into bowls and garnish with celery, tomato slices, and fried shallots.
  3. The recipe would probably be even tastier if, before you started, you rubbed the meat lightly with vegetable oil and roasted it for an hour or so at 425 degrees, then deglazed the pan with water, used that for the soup base, and skipped the initial boil-and-dump phase.

*An easy way to remove the seeds from a cucumber is to use the tip of a vegetable peeler to scrape them out. **To peel and cut a mango, set the fruit on a cutting board so that the ridge that covers the pit is face-up. Using a sharp knife, carefully make two cuts on either side of this ridge (parallel to the ridge), slicing through the fruit. Discard the pit and place the two halves on the cutting board, skin side down. Use the knife to score the flesh of these two halves, creating a checkerboard pattern.Taking each half in your hand, push up in the center from the skin side to loosen the scored cubes of mango from the skin. Carefully slide the knife between the cubes and the mango skin to cut them from the fruit.
