Sup Tulang Recipe ( Beef Rib Soup)

My food blog journey continues with another simple Malaysian recipe called ‘Sup Tulang’. So what is it? It is a beef (with bone) soup or stew. The meat we are looking at can be either from the cow’s neck, legs or ribs. The reason of using the bone is to get the marrow out from the bone that gives an extraordinary flavor to the soup. For the ultimate marrow result, people always use knee bone, also popular as ‘The Gear Box’ in Malaysia.

‘Sup Tulang’ is best served with boiled rice and 'sambal belacan'. However in my hometown (Melaka), ‘Sup Tulang’ is also popular to be served with slice of bread especially during ‘rewang’ time.

  1. This recipe looks really yummy. How about mixing it with just plain meat? and just a little bit of bones just for the (bone marrow) flavor? does it work OK?
