Offal can be so delicious if prepared well. If you've got a weak stomach, i'd suggest finding tripe that's already been cleaned for you because cleaning tripe puts most people off eating it. If you have a pressure cooker, it will reduce your cooking time to a fraction of this. 

You can use cow or sheep tripe with this recipe and i prefer my tripe seasoned with nothing but salt and some chili. 

What you'll Need - Serves 4 

  • 500g Tripe

  • 1 Onion

  • 2 Tsp Powdered Brown Onion Soup

  • 2 Fresh Chilies (Optional)

  • Salt

Prep - 20 Mins 

  • If your tripe isn't already cleaned, clean it thoroughly (Or you'll be chewing on sand)

  • Cut up your tripe into pieces

Let's Get Cooking - Approximately 5 Hours 

  • In a large pot, place your tripe and top the pot off with water and allow to boil at medium heat until tender (Take a piece and have a taste). Keeping adding water to the pot as it cooks. This takes about 4 hours, if you have a pressure cooker, it speeds up this cooking process.

  • Once the tripe is almost cooked, there should still be enough water to cover half the pot.

  • Chop onions and add to the tripe when it’s 30 minutes from completion.

  • Mix the brown onion soup with a small amount of water and add to the pot of tripe.

  • Season with salt to taste.

  • Serve with fresh chilies if preferred
