❤️ About This Korean Oxtail Soup

What sets this recipe apart is the oxtail, with its beautiful marbling, providing tenderness and flavor. The collagen-rich bones produce a luxurious broth, and the meat becomes beautifully tender. Plus, the slow-cooked potatoes give the soup extra thickness and heartiness.

Now, we’re adding Korean chili powder for a smoky color and flavor without too much heat. It’s all about the taste.

And here’s the magic touch: soybean paste, fermented to perfection. This not only elevates the soup’s savory goodness but also gives your immune system a boost and helps keep your gut in balance.

I really like this oxtail soup, and it’s very convenient. I sometimes make it on Sundays and reheat the leftovers for several days, which makes weeknight dinners much easier.
