Oxtail Sopas, Oxtail with Macaroni Soup

Oxtail Sopas, Oxtail with Macaroni Soup
Oxtail Sopas, Oxtail with Macaroni Soup. This is another innovative dish that I made last week. I was planning to make a stew out of oxtail but I thought it would be best if I just have it cook the oxtail Pinoy style. For the reason that to most Pinoy oxtail is usually cooked as soup dish. Cooking the dish is fairly easy, except for the long cooking hours of the oxtail it is basically the same with my other sopas dish below.

Oxtail Sopas

To make the cooking simple I just used frozen mixed vegetables for the vegetable ingredients however you may substitute it with your usual favorite sopas vegetables. Then I had to used fresh milk for the reason that I could not find a Pinoy brand of canned evaporated milk, again go ahead use a canned evaporated milk. Here is the recipe of my Oxtail Sopas, Oxtail with Macaroni Soup.


1/2-1 kilo oxtail
2 cups macaroni elbow pasta
1 cup mixed vegetables
1 small bundle, spring onion, chopped
1/2 head garlic, crushed
1/2 head garlic, chopped
1 small size onion quartered
1 medium size onion, chopped
1/4 cup fish sauce
1/2 cup fresh milk
1 tsp. peppercorns
salt and pepper
cooking oil

  1. this is amazing! too bad i don't eat oxtail bec of the heavy fat content, but i do LOVE oxtail though.

  2. It looks so yummy! At first look I thought it was a Sinigang sa Miso bowl. But I think this sopas is good both as a main course and as a merienda.

  3. Hi Jean,
    It is good as main course...
