Sop Buntut Goreng

Oxtail soup


Boiling Oxtail

  • 700 g oxtail
  • Enough water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 5-6 cloves
  • 1/2 of a nutmeg slice/crush
  • Salt to taste


  • 8 new potatoes the small ones, quarter
  • 3 carrots skin and slice
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 3 green onions
  • Snap peas 1 bag, 150 g
  • 2 tbsp ready to use fried onion


Boiling Oxtail

  • Bring all to boil for 10 mins on high then lower heat to medium, and cook for another 10 mins


  • Drop all (except snap peas) into the pot and cook until carrots and potatoes are tender
  • Once tender, drop in snap peas, stir and turn off heat and cover pot with lid, let sit for 5-8 mins (snap peas should be still somewhat crunchy but also somewhat tender)

Frying Oxtail

  • Once carrot and potatoes are tender, before adding snap peas, take out oxtail as many as you like
  • Coat oxtail in enough flour mixture of flour, garlic powder, salt and ground white pepper (if you have Vegeta/Royco/Masako seasoning, they are much better than only salt)
  • Heat enough oil and fry coated oxtail
  • Serve soup sprinkled with more fried onion (and if you have coriander leaves) along with fried oxtail and hot sauce (sambal)
  • Enjoy :)
