Dum shu'rva (Soup from Ox's tail)
In Uzbek cuisine Ox's tail is widely used for cooking delicious dishes. We cook soups, pilafs, fried dishes from it. Today I am posting recipe of healthy, tasty and very simple recipe of soup. I like the sticky meat of the tail part! It is very useful for bones.
500 gr of tail pieces
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
3 onions, peeled and sliced
2 medium peeled and sliced red carrots
2 medium peeled and quartered potatoes
Salt to taste
1 tbsp of ground coriander
Some fresh chopped coriander leaves
Put tail pieces in cold 2 liters of water, bring to boil on a hight heat. Scoop out all the foam that will float to the surface and lower the heat on medium. Let it simmer under half closed lid for 1.5 hour. In separate pan heat the oil and fry onions until soft, then add in carrot slices and ground coriander. Fry for 5 min and then add in to the soup. Continue boiling for another 30 min. Now add in potatoes and boil again for 20 min or until potatoes are soft. Add in salt and take from the heat.
Serve sprinkling over fresh chopped coriander leaves. Enjoy with fresh vegetables and greens:)
