Last week I made a sort of ‘different’ dish, ox tail soup.
The tails came from my very own beef steers which I
raised myself. The recipe I used came from the good
‘ol Fanny Farmer cookbook. As you’ll see, I didn’t
follow the recipe exactly.
The tails were frozen, so I put them in the oven for a bit.
I heated some olive oil in a pot.
I dusted the tails with flour.
This picture is pretty self-explanitory. :)
Bonny is hoping she’ll get a sample. She’s a good helper
in the kitchen, lol.
I took the tails out and drained the oil, and put broth
and water into the pot.
I put the tails back in,
…and let them simmer for quite a few hours.
About 3o minutes before serving, I added vegetables:
carrots, celery, leeks, etc. I also added salt and pepper at
this point. This soup needed quite a bit of salt.
Gracie made some wonderful biscuits to go with the soup.
Here it is, served in a gorgeous bowl!
