Cow foot soup - 08/09/08 07:28 PM

I had the pleasure of having my first bowl of this delicious soup in July. I bought it from a vendor at the park.
She told me "it good for the man to make babies"
Needless to say that's all I had to tell Belikin Jimmy to get him to try some - he loved it. I know it had leg or knee bones, potatoes and okra in it.
Does anyone have a recipe?

Our Belizean friend is cooking it for us this weekend. I will try to steal her recipe for you. I love it once you get past the fact is is made from cows hooves.

Thank you grin
The woman that was selling it told me how she cleaned everything really good before it went in the soup. I don't know if I can find any foots at the local HEB!

I got our cowfoot this week right from the field where it was slaughtered, talk about fresh. Our friend cleans and scrubs them and chops them herself. You can buy it here in any meat shop all cleaned and sliced but it is close to 7 Bze a pound. But like pigtail, I do not think many US shops carry it.

Have you ever eaten pickled pigs feet? Very similar. There is lots of bone and cartilage and skin, but it makes a great soup!

If anyone gets a recipe ----PLEASE post it!

P.S. If you eat it -- plan on having a 1 hour nap after dinner
This meal works like a sleeping pill

Have to run now -- I think I see my neighbors cow

Thanks Warren - Now which part of this cow do I want? I always thought it was the hoof or ankle.
