葁醋牛尾蛋 (Sweet Rice Vinegar Oxtail & Eggs with Ginger)

So this dish is apparently supposed to be magical if you’re pregnant. (Or was it right after you’ve been pregnant?) Uh…one or the other. I didn’t pay such close attention because I don’t fall into either category, but anyway, it’s supposed to be good for you regardless of any of that. I was only unnerved when my mom asked me why I didn’t drink all the vinegar.

I’m not much in the habit of drinking vinegar (this is probably more fuel for the fire in terms of my friends here teasing me about being a bad Asian, but we will agree to disagree).

葁醋牛尾蛋 (Sweet Rice Vinegar Oxtail & Eggs with Ginger)

Ingredients:
-½ lb. ginger
-2 lb. oxtail
-sweet rice vinegar
-eggs, hardboiled

Instructions:
1) Place eggs in pot and bring water to a boil. Let eggs cook until they’re hardboiled, then drain and let cool. Peel shells off and cut eggs in half lengthwise.
2) Place oxtails in a large pot. Fill with enough water to cover oxtails, and place over high heat. Bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 2½-3 hours. Remove from heat. Cook ginger.
3) Put oxtails, hardboiled eggs, and ginger into a bowl. Add sweet rice vinegar and serve!
