This Week’s Soup – Oink Tail

The Cat suggests I refrain from posting about chicken feet for a while (a long while). She thinks I lose readers when I post about it. Okay, a self-imposed moratorium.

Picked up from the newly re-opened (new owners) Korean supermarket.

Ox tails have become sooooooo expensive (way beyond our income level). And to think they used to be almost free. Sigh. Oink tails on the other hand, are still reasonably priced. Don’t let the “celebrity” chefs in on the secret. Shhhhh!

Par-boiled, drained, washed. New water, dried bamboo shoot, dried mushroom (both rehydrated), ginger, orange peel, splash of vinegar, splash of vodka …

Low and slow …

Happy oinking! 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
