Ox Tail Soup - Caldo de Res by LovelyWaifu Ox Tail Soup - Caldo de Res by LovelyWaifu
HalfPain Home Cooking!
Easy recipies for hearty meals

This is a recipe that has been passed on in my family for years and years and years. It's one of my favorite winter comfort foods and one of the best things you could have to warm up those coooooooold winter night! And best of all, it's pretty easy to make!

What you'll need:

2 lbs Ox tail meat, with bones*
Fresh cilantro
Half a medium green bell pepper, cut into large chunks
Half a small white onion, diced
1 extra large potato, cut into large chunks
4 half cob corn
3 carrots, cut into thick slices
3 celery stalks, cut into thick slices
Half a green cabbage
1 garlic clove
Cominos (cumin)
Salt
Pepper
Lemon (optional)
*If ox tail isn't sold in your area, you can replace it with soup beef. Just make sure it has a nice, big bone with it! Note that ox tail is sometimes labelled as "hind shank".

How to Make it:

- Place with meat, along with the bones, in a medium sized soup pot and add desired water. (around 6 quarts is good, put if if you want the brother stronger). Also add the onion, garlic, cilantro (a few stalks-worth of a leaves should do it), salt, pepper and cominos.
- Boil, with a lid on it, until the meat is tender. (up to 2 hours)
- Add the potato, corn, corrots, bell pepper and cabbage and boil until all the veggies are tender. (should take another hour or so)
- Top with lemon juice and Enjoy!

If you want the real experience, serve it on a bed of rice! Here's the recipe:

What you need:

Rice
Canola oil
Tomato sauce
Cominos
Chicken boullion
Salt
Pepper
Water



How to make it:

- Place rice in a deep skillet over medium-high heat, adding just enough oil to coat the rice.
- Cook the rice until most of it has begun to turn white, stirring often.
- Add water until the water level is double that of the rice level, then add the rest of the ingredients according to your tastes (go light on the boullion since this is for the soup).
- Cover, reduce heat and simmer until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. If the rice is still a little crunchy, keep it covered without heat for a few minutes.
- Put in a bowl and top with soup!

NOTE: Don't add the rice to the soup! It'll only get soggy and icky! :P
