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
2 Tsp Powdered Brown Onion Soup
2 Fresh Chilies (Optional)
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
