    Ooooh, Oxtail? I’ve never made it that way before! Will have to try it!

      It is optional if you cannot find them, but they sure add an extra layer of richness to the broth.

    I love French onion soup and this one is literally the best I have ever had! It is so delicious, the family loved it. We were able to find ox tail at Walmart and tried it. It definitely makes a huge difference in the flavor.

    I could eat this year round- especially when Vidalia onions are in season. The oxtail sounds so good in this soup. So comforting and very warming this time of the year.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      I love Vidalia onions. I make this soup as soon as we start to have the first morning chill.
      Enjoy!
