Only 1 lb. of Oxtail, but I Want to Make Soup! How much water?

Hello all!

I bought a whole oxtail to make beef stock for curry a few months ago, and have about a lb. left in my freezer. I'd like to simmer it for a nice Korean style soup tonight, but am not sure how much water I'll need just to cook 1 lb. I realize it probably seems really wasteful to spend all that time simmering the oxtail when there's so little of it, but these are leftovers, and I'd like to use them up.

I'm thinking once I get whatever nice stock I can get out of these bones, I'll probably need to add a little garlic powder and a spoonful or so of beef consomme to help it along. After that, it'll just be a little white pepper, sesame oil, daikon slices and green onion. Simple but hopefully delicious! :) I usually make this with a big slab of chuck in huge quantities, but....well, like I said....Leftovers.

I would be grateful for any tips or advice on how to make the most of my measly little lb. of oxtail for this soup! :)
