This is one of Jamie Olivers recipes. My whole family loves this, even my 8 year old.and he doesnt usually eat soup at all! I totally recommend adding the bacon as a garnish, it really finishes it off!
Jamie makes this beautiful beef stew using oxtail for an amazing on-the-bone flavour. Then he takes it three different ways - with pasta, on Mash and as a soup. Amazingly versatile and incredibly tasty. You can make it on the hob or in a slow cooker too.
