Nilagang Oxtail

Nilagang Oxtail
Nilagan Oxtail. Oxtails are best for soup and stew, Nilagang Oxtail is my second oxtail soup. I have recently posted an Indonesian sop buntot which is more savory but really delicious. If you still prefer our own nilaga, here is my version of nilagang oxtail, with the addition of corn in a cob it is similar to the popular bulalo pochero of Cebu. Compared to bulalo, oxtail will also produce an equally rich broth, enjoy.

Nilagang Oxtail Recipe


1/2 k. oxtail, saw cut crosswise at 1 1/2” in thickness
1/2 small size cabbage, cut into wedges
2 pcs. sweet corn in a cob, cut into 4 parts
1 small bundle green beans, trimmed
1 small size carrot, cut into wedges
1 medium size whole onion
2 medium size onion, quartered
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 tsp. peppercorns

Cooking procedure:
