Kitchen Experiment #3: Ox Tail Soup

20 August 2014 § 0

I've been longing for the taste of balbacua and Bulkachong from back home so I experimented with ox tail soup.


500g ox tail
1-2L water
2 Tbsp tomato paste
2 pcs beef cubes
2 tsp chili powder (optional)
2 tsps cornflour


1. Boil ox tail for 10 minutes to remove nasty smell and taste.
2. Rinse ox tail and let it dry
3. Season ox tail with salt
4. In a hot pan, sear oxtail
5. In a separate pan, boil 1L of water then add ox tail
6. Add tomato paste and let it slowly cook for 2 hours adding water from time to time
7. After 2 hours, add the beef cubes
8. After 30 minutes, take 1/2 cup of soup and let it cool down for a couple of minutes then mix with cornflour
9. Put the cornflour mixture back to the pan and mix well.
      9.a Add chilli powder (optional)
10. Let it simmer for 5 minutes then add bokchoy. Serve.


"It's not balbacua and it's not bulcachong but I like it!"
                                                                                     - Me

What's this?
