Sop Buntut ( Beef oxtail soup)

I got this oxtail from meat aisle in a supermarket, it is very rare to see oxtail there, not all the supermarket sell this thing. Its quite cheap for 500 gr. I used a bit more than half package for this recipe, and put the rest on the freezer. I'll cook again with different recipe next time, called fried beef oxtail.

I don't have a pressure cooking, so i must cook them for very long, but its worth it effort. I usually buy the oxtail soup from Indonesian restaurant here, i guess they cook them for 1-2 days (LOL), because their oxtail are sooo tender... I tried to remember the taste of that soup when I'm making my own soup, because i never make this on my own before, and i want to make as authentic as possible, only use my feeling.

And the result is great, taste good, delicious, yummy, tender!!.
