Oxtail Congee (Porridge)

Oxtail soup has always been a favorite of mine.  I didn’t grow up on it but I eat it often enough, as if I did.  My sister made this dish for me years ago and ever since I always make it a point to cook it whenever Chris or I are sick with a cold/flu or when it’s cold out.  It’s not a heavy or chunky soup, it’s a brothy soup with a ton of flavors.  I always make a big pot of it but having it day after day can get boring and tedious.

Oxtail Soup

It has been quite chilly here the past few days.  So chilly that a pot of soup was in order.  I love this soup.  I remember having it at a friend’s house for dinner when I was 10 years old.  And in my early 20’s, I learned this recipe from Kimi.  I remember one time I made this soup and E added a dried bay leaf to it —it threw this entire soup off and not in a good way.  Suffice it to say it went into the trash.  If you want to alter this soup in any way —please do not add a bay leaf in here.  The flavor of this soup comes from the oxtail and the veggies.  There’s no need for any herbs or spices.  Bottoms up!
