How do you cook tripe?

    Tripe, when well prepared can be delicious! There are many bad recipes though...

    An Italian lady I once worked for gave me this one...

    You'll need salt, black pepper, extra virgin olive oil, 2 cloves fresh garlic, 3 med size carrots, 1 med size onion, and a family size can of white beans.

    you have to boil the tripe. and when you think you're done boiling the tripe, you have to boil it more. once you have it pretty well cooked through and the texture is reasonably tender, yet slightly chewy, remove most of the water from the pan (allow just enough to cover most of the tripe). Add a generous amount of salt, black pepper and a nice drizzle of olive oil.

    Allow the mixture to remain on the stove top on low heat. Clean and dice 3 med size carrots and one med size onion. Sautee the vegetables in a shallow pan with a pinch of salt and about 2 cloves of minced fresh garlic. Cook until tender. Add the can of white beans (drained and rinsed) to the vegetable mix and allow to warm. When the entire mixture has warmed, add to the Simmering tripe.

    Cover the entire mixture and place in a 300 degree oven. Cook 40 minutes.

    Serve with crusty bread as the stock used to cook the tripe becomes a beautifully rich broth.
