My grandmother and mother makes it the same way.

This is a very simple recipe from http://www.slashfood.com/2005/09/19/six-minute-seoul-food/

The soup is a very clear broth and usually only seasoned with salt and green onions. The author uses black pepper as well but most Koreans only use sea salt and green onions. Some add a bit of chili paste (usually to nurse a hangover ).

Ingredients:
Oxtails
4-5 Garlic Gloves

Season with(each person seasons his/her own soup; don't throw these things into the pot!):
Sea Salt
Black Pepper (black dot; Some Koreans only use sea salt and green onions)
Green Onions

  • Rinse about two pounds of oxtails under cold water. Mom said: Soak the bones for about 1 hour in cold water and throw the water out

  • Place oxtails in a large pot, then fill with enough water to cover over the meat and bones by two times.

  • Add four or five whole garlic cloves, lightly crushed, then simmer for two to three hours, skimming the "foam" from the surface every once in a while. The longer you simmer, the richer the broth!

  • Serve broth and a few oxtail bones with salt, pepper, and chopped green onions for each person to season the broth to his or her own taste.


My modification - SLOW COOKER!!! Might have to resort to lamb leg or other bones. I am not sure if the grocery in my area has oxtail. Garnish with sweet onions and mushrooms; the soup is very hot so the onions and mushrooms will soften.

I saw some oxtail the other day, I forget where I was, maybe Whole Foods.  I will certainly give it a try some time.  Ox tail is not listed on my swami, but I would imagine it is equal in value to beef and bison (superfoods).  Thanks for sharing.  

Adding:  I once had delicious oxtail soup in Ireland, but it was not a clear broth, it was more like a bisque.

You are so lucky to have a Whole Foods near you! I am trying to locate a Mexican butcher shop in my area. The closest Whole Foods is 2.5 hours away in Chicago.

Bisque sounds great.

The Korean soup is really clear. I just called home and mom told me to make the initial batch in a soup pot.

Her directions: After it has boiled for about 2 hours (clear foam in between), cool and stick in the fridge. Scrape all the fat off the broth, which will have turned into a jelly. Transfer jelly and bones into the slow cooker and replenish with water to keep the soup going.

I plan on garnishing it with sweet onions and other diamonds as I eat it. My grandmother used to put rice in our individual bowls of soup. Other people serve it with noodles. So, it is really up to the person and the individual taste.

Enjoy!

Passionprincess, I know I have seen oxtails in supermarkets.  Not often or regularly, but I have seen them now and then.  You might get lucky if you hunt around.  Ethnic markets are probably a good bet (Jamaicans also use oxtail in recipes), too.  Good luck, I hope you find some!  I make beef bone broth in a crock pot, just as you describe:  After it is finished simmering, I strain the broth and rerigerate overnight, then scrape off the fat the next day.  What is left is a clear jelly that liquifies into broth with heating.  I've never tried it with oxtails, though.  Looking forward to that.  Thanks again!

I've bought oxtails at walmart before.  I think it may depend on where you live, i think walmart caters to the surrounding neighborhoods and it's cultures (i live in a predominately mexican area).

Thanks, Virginia and Mickey!

I finally found some. Went to 5 different places and decided to enjoy the drive. I was directed to the local Kroger's by the butcher at the Mexican market (about 15 minutes from my place).

Well, alright then!  Who knew you'd find it in your own back yard.

Well, we call it the OTHER SIDE of town but it was a nice venture away from the normal scenery. I live in a college town where it is quite "white". The only non-white people are the students and professors. It was nice to be able to locate the ox tail, though.

We are hoping for Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. My parents' home in L.A. have several of both stores within a 15 mile radius. So jealous!!!

I used a dozen ox tails. I am going to divide the jelly and meat and freeze them in batches (got clearance from mom). That way, I can put whatever portion I want in the slow cooker. You can add water to the jelly and simmer it for hours to draw out the nutrients.

I have not been swami-ed yet but I guess I am a nomad. I was actually craving this soup last night. Have not had it since I was a teenager. I was going through a healing crisis so I made instant rice noodles. YUCK. Had MSG (avoid) and a few other things. Made me bloat all day long. I am finally back to normal and can't wait to have the soup!

Oh, by the way, if you are going to use the jellied broth in the slow cooker, you can dilute it with some water since the broth will be super rich. The meat will pretty much fall off the bones. Dip it in a bit of sea salt or your compliant spices and enjoy!
