Hawaiian Oxtail Soup Recipe


  • 3 to 4 pounds Oxtails
  • 4 cups Chicken broth:
  • 1 small-size Ginger peeled, and chopped into thin slices
  • 4 whole pieces Star Anise
  • ½ orange Orange Peel
  • 2 rehydrated Shiitake Mushroom
  • 1 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 tsp Black Peppercorns whole
  • 1 pound Mustard Greens chopped
  • Lime wedges
  • Red Pepper Flakes crushed
  • 1 chopped Green onions
  • Cilantro chopped


  • To begin this Hawaiian Oxtail Soup Recipe, you need to preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Next, place the oxtails on a baking sheet and cook for 45 minutes in the oven. Be sure to turn it over after 30 minutes so all sides of the oxtail get cooked. 
  • While the oxtail is baking, grab a bowl and soak the dried shiitake mushroom to rehydrate. Use hot water for this purpose. 
  • Remove the oxtails from the oven after 45 minutes and put them in a pot. 
  • Then add the mushroom, star anise, ginger, orange peels, peppercorn, and chicken broth to the broth pot.
  • Add water to submerge all the ingredients, and set to boil. The amount of water should be about 9 to 10 cups.
  • Once the broth starts to boil, add the mixture, and then simmer and cook until the oxtails become tender.
  • Cook and simmer for 3 hours and remove the froth or oil formed on the broth pan.
  • Use a strainer and strain the broth in a pan to separate the ingredients from the liquid broth.
  • Serve the oxtail in bowls. Discard any additional ingredients.
  • Reheat the whole soup again, and once it starts to boil, add the fish sauce and salt to taste.
  • You can now add the mustard greens for cooking as well.
  • Garnish the soup with lemon wedges, cilantro, ginger slices, and green onions.
