This soup is not just awesome if you are sick, but is also prepared with low effort and gives the opportunity to freeze a lot of it and just heat it up on a lazy day. Maybe, with some extra vegetables or fast cooked meat thrown in.
Sear the oxtail and the bones with clarified butter in a big pot
Pour hot water into the pot, until it is completely filled. Don't pour cold water into hot fat, it could start to burn!
Let it simmer for at least 4-5 hours with the lid on. It is perfect when the meat and bone marrow separate from the bones on its own. Occasionally, pour new water into the pot until it is filled again.
Cut vegetables, put them in and add the seasonings
Let it simmer until the vegetables are done
This recipe works with any kind of meat. However, notice that it is important to use meat including bones, if you want the good, healthy stuff like collagen and minerals. These dissolve in the soup/broth after a few hours of cooking.
