Tripe Anyone?

Pirate bought a three pound package of honeycomb tripe. So now I get to cook this hunk of a cows tummy for hours and then have to cut it into bite size pieces. After that they are put in a pasta sauce (which I won't be eating) to finish cooking.

The last time I help making this was more than 45 years ago. There is a reason it has been so long. It is a LOT of work.

You can also cut it into strips and deep fry it, give it google and you will see several recipes.

Put Pirate to work scrubbing it with several changes of lemon water, using a fingernail brush. That's very important! Have him cut it up first before you cook it. I bet it's the last time he ever brings it home.

It's been many years, but I always boiled it outside, and so does everyone else around here when making Menudo.
The smell will tell you it's Fri nights here when everyone is making weekend Menudo.

Do we inform the OP that it is not tummy?
Yes, make him clean it, cut it and cook it.

Another thought is Philadelphia Pepper Pot Soup.

That recipe sounds sooo good AB. Do you remember when Campbell's made Pepper Pot soup? I loved it!

I remember the Campbell's version and one version from a local restaurant that was very good. These days I would skip the tripe, unless someone gave it to me, and use a piece of round steak.

Pirate is the one who is going to make it. Right now he has the flu and is not making anything. He is going to make it Italian style.
