  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 parsnip, chopped
  • 1 turnip, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped

    It is my understanding that oxtail, although delicious – is a sin to eat because it is reserved for a sacrifice to god only.

    • Hi Nanette. I’ve been eating oxtail my whole life and every kosher grocery store I’ve been to sells it. I’ve never heard that it’s a sin to eat oxtail. Most of the back side of the cow isn’t kosher but the tail actually is.

      Eating oxtail was only forbidden in the times of the Jewish Temple. When an animal was brought up as a sacrifice it was forbidden to eat the tail, but nowadays when we have no bais hamikdash, it is permitted to eat it.

    This sounds delicious. The soup in the photo looks very thick – can you clarify if it is? Thanks

    Shoukd I let the bone marrow and oxtail come to a boil first before adding everything in the pot? I’m using a regular pot not a pressure cooker.
