Ox Tail Soup

1 package of ox tail bones with meat (any supermarket)
lots of water
pepper and salt for taste
1 chopped green onion per person for garnish

Place ox tail bones in a large bowl of cold water for about 1 hour. (This is to take out excessive blood.) Put cleaned ox tails in a large pot with about 1.5 gallon of water.

On a medium heat, boil for about 6 to 10 hours. (the more, the better) During the boiling time, check the pot from time to time and take out oil floating on surface with a big serving spoon. Pour more water to maintain at least 1 gallon in the pot. When it is done, it should be close to cream color.

Serve soup with couple of bones with sides of chopped green onion, salt and pepper.
