There are many varieties of oxtail soup. One of the popular variant which's originated in Indonesia is "Fried Oxtail Soup" -
a fried/barbecued oxtail combine with soup variation. The specialty of fried oxtail soup is that the oxtail is not only be cooked but also be fried afterward.
Usually both will be served in two separated dishes to preserve it's best taste. While ejoying a bowl of yummy soup you can take a bite on your crispy crunchy oxtail ;-)
Important tips : If preffered use the pressure cooker to cook the oxtail to reduce the cooking time. Discard the used water after oxtails have been boiled, never think a twice to reserve it for stock. Experience told me those used water always containt too much fat and smell pretty badly.
