Humble oxtails provide a tasty, gelatinous broth that can be served with the boned meat or with whole rounds of oxtails— guests will have to pick them up, since getting at the meat with a fork is nearly impossible. This soup requires no effort other than tracking down the oxtails, but it does take about 5 hours to cook. For an ultimate version, use beef broth or brown chicken broth. You can also use the rich broth and meat to make a terrine (following).
