Ox feet soup - bone broth

I have been looking for ox feet for a long time at conventional grocery stores and found out that an Asian supermarket is the only place selling those in Austin area. I am used to finding ox feet at most markets in Yerevan. My grandpa makes a wonderful traditional dish called "khash", a heart warming soup seasoned with garlic and accompanied by lavash (traditional Armenian bread) and Tti oxi (Mulberry vodka).

Ox feet broth

The broth I made does not exactly represent "khash", but it is very rich in gelatin and minerals.

1-2 lbs ox feet
8 cups of water


Put ox feet and water in a pot and bring it to boil, then reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 hours or longer (to allow more nutrients to be released). Add some salt shortly before removing from heat. Add pressed garlic to individual servings.

Bon Appetit!

The excess broth can serve as a base for other soups. After keeping in the refrigerator for a few hours it will form a thin layer of fat on top of the thick gelatinous broth.
