    Oxtail Confusion

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Hello all, I hope you're having a lovely summer day.

    I have a question regarding the soup I made today, my first venture in oxtail-making. The recipe I made was roughly this: Oxtail Soup Recipe, Hawaiian Oxtail Soup Recipe | Simply Recipes, adding a splash of vinegar because I've heard it helps somehow with bone broth-making. The meat turned out luscious and falling off the bone, and the broth was rich and delicious. But am I mistaken in thinking I am supposed to be able to suck or scoop out the soft marrow? The marrow looks swollen and overflowing from the bones but it's rather tough and incoercible. Is it just unfinished cooking?

    Thanks!

    oxtail marrow never gets squishy (at least in my experience). Some bones do it, others don't.

    Right. Oxtail doesn't really have much marrow. The stuff in the center is actually part of the spinal cord I think. Shank bones are the ones that have a nice big plug of marrow in the middle. And I love Simply Recipes. Great website.

    Making me hungry. Your broth is going to be full of great collagen and other healthy goodness, too.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/
