Batch cooking and ox tails??
Ox tail anyone??? Ok... it’s actually a cow tail. We buy a quarter beef twice a year and I ALWAYS ask for bones!
Sometimes the butcher will clean the bones, but I actually prefer they don’t. You’d be surprised how much it changes the flavor (and nutritive this density) of your broth. Not to mention I was able to glean a meal and a half’s worth of tender, pulled beef from this batch.
If you ever purchase meat this way, be sure to ask them to leave the meat on your soup bones. It’s less work for the butcher and more food for you and your family!
