Oxtail Soup

Oxtail Soup is just so healthy and delicious. If you've never had it, you don't know what you are missing.

This is a guest blog from Sonia. It's her second one. Her first was Sonia's Ceviche.
 She is a great cook and we're lucky to have another recipe from her!

 Also, she is a Crossfit Countdown BEAST. See?

So, some people are going to think, "What?? Oxtail?? I'm not about to eat that!" It's just another cut from the animal - be BRAVE! OR, make it with another meat that you think is ok, like a grass fed roast. You will do best with a roast that still has a bone in it, because the marrow is a very important part of this recipe though.

Here's Sonia's recipe:

2 lb ox tail (International Grocery Store in Charleston) or whatever meat preferred
1 cup diced white onion
1 cup red/green bell peppers
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup allspice
1/4 cup curry
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut oil
salt and pepper to taste

Add coconut oil to crockpot set on high. After melted add oxtail  and onions, peppers, garlic.  Once stirred together add all seasonings.  Simmer on high until meat is cooked. (The liquid comes from the coconut oil, water from the veggies, and marrow from the ox tail.) Simmer on low for one more hour.

Serve over rice.  I used cauliflower "rice."

Bone marrow is delicious and helps to keep your bones STRONG so try this one out. You are going to love it!

Thanks, Sonia.
