If you haven’t tried it, don’t knock it.

No kidding.  Oxtail is great.

Wouldn't it just a 1:1 swap by weight burger for roast beast?

...I'd brown the 'burger first, and I'd be on the fence about dumping what cooked out of the 'burger in the soup.  It'd add flavor...but not sure I want to eat it at this point in my life.

 I just saw this recipe on TV the other night.

They made miniature meatballs with a 50-50 mixture of beef and pork. They mix the typical spaces for beef and pork i.e.. Garlic and thyme, into the ground meat, and then made little meatballs about the size of a marble and browned them in a frying pan. 

They floated them in the soup broth already cooked essentially. I think that’s to make them stick together in the broth.

Rather than buying ground beef, you’ll find that buying a English blade roast or chuck roast, when they’re on sale at a place like Aldie’s, and then ground to suit when you need ground beef, tastes better and is healthier, and you can control how much fat is in the ground meat that you eat.

I use just a hand crank grinder on the counter.  

I just hate the constant bad news reports of bad stuff being transmitted by commercially ground ground beef.

So I quit buying it.

Thanks for the recipe.  Yes, I've made ox tail soup .....  I can't give it a positive yes.   Very greasy.  Perhaps the can version is not so greasy, I very seldom eat process foods....

Chicken soup is okay. Hardly a treat.

Good choice.

Even when it's decent quality, it's not good for you.  What you're doing is much, much better.

The BEST soup, per se, does not exist. As beauty is in the eye of the beholder, soup is in the taste buds of the diner.

 When I was younger, I was expected to work outdoors no matter what the temperature.

I can tell you that there were days when working outside at 20 below zero, that the cold slowly sinks into your body. On those days, a bowl of hot soup even if no more than flavored bouillon was unbelievably delicious, and sorely welcome.

So yes, the beauty really is in the tastebuds of the beholder.

20 below is damn cold, it was 1 below the other night, I thought that was cold, just can't imagine in a war trying to stay warm let alone shoot a rifle, dig a trench line etc.   

I can tell you one thing for sure, I was USMC 5th Marines Vietnam 1966,   I would never made it, on the Russian Front or Korea.

Not to be overly dramatic but when the cold starts to sink into your face you can’t even speak clearly. Growing a beard becomes a necessity no matter how sparse.

I imagine on the Russian front, people probably just quietly sat there and died.
