As promised, I asked Melody for her tripe recipe and she lovingly shared it with me. She never gave specific measurements for any of the ingredients; depending on the quantities you are preparing, I think it is all very self explanatory. So with no further ado…
Tripe cut into bite size pieces (fresh or frozen)
- Cook the tripe in a covered dish over night in a low oven (100°C) covered in water and salt to taste or until the tripe is tender. Check periodically in case more liquid is required.
- Chop the onions and fry until soft.
- Make a white sauce.
- Remove any liquid from the tripe and stir in the onions and white sauce.
- Cook for a further hour.
I think I need to try some tripe. I’ve heard such love and hate stories about it. Love the simplicity here though. 🙂
I remember you saying that you would brave it and give it a go. I look forward to hearing what your views are. Have a great day. 🙂
Is this an English recipe??? I’m thinking that just the slightest scratch of nutmeg would be nice. You think so? The recipe seems just right for a wintry evening. Thank you for the share…
HI Gian, thanks for stopping by. I actually have no idea if this is an English recipe or not. I don’t eat tripe but imagine that nutmeg would be a great enhancement. Have a super day. 🙂
one day ……
You are much braver than me Tandy! Have a lovely day. 🙂
I never had tried tripe in white sauce, always tomatoes or soy chilli. This certainly looks very interesting to me and would love to give it a shot. I love tripe.
Hope you enjoy it prepared this way too Raymund. Have a great day. 🙂
I’ve never seen tripe prepared this way but I’d be willing to give it a try. Interesting that it cooks overnight, even if at so low a temperature and I imagine the tripe is extremely tender by morning. Add the white sauce and I bet it’s a tasty dish. Thanks, Mandy, for sharing. I know this wouldn’t be considered a favorite of yours.
Glad you enjoyed the idea of cooking tripe this way John. I would love to hear how you enjoy it. Please just promise that you won’t serve it the day I come and visit. 😉 Have a super day. 🙂
I am so very definitiely going to try this! As you know, we eat tripe here and I love white sauce, love onions….so good and simple! Hope your dad got to eat this 🙂
It’s often the easier less fussy meals that are the nicest, although as you know, I will steer clear of this one – you can enjoy my portion too. Have a lovely day Tanya. 🙂
I remember this post! Thank you for sharing the recipe!! White sauce must be the key for the success!
Hope you give it a try sometime Nami. have a lovely day. 🙂
Oh Mum used to make it like that too but there was parsley in the white sauce! I like the sauce! c
Hee hee, I like the sauce too but stop at that Celi. Stay warm. 🙂
What a warm and comforting looking meal for the cold winter season!
Glad you like it Georgia. Have a great day. 🙂
wow … didn’t expect you would love tripe…I miss them…how did you clean it? Just with water?
Hi Angie, I don’t like tripe at all, I posted the recipe from a lady who makes it for my Dad every year for his birthday. She buys the tripe already cleaned, so sorry I cannot help! Have a super day. 🙂
I just can’t get my head, or my mouth around tripe. But, your photo is really quite beautiful, Mandy! Happy Monday to you!
You and be both – not sure I could ever get tripe passed my lips. Have a super week ahead Betsy. 🙂
OOOO, This looks DElishhhh. Xx
Have a nice Monday, Mandy.
Glad you like it Kim. Have a beautiful week ahead. 🙂 xo
Ok ok ok…I’ll admit that I’ve never had Tripe before, but I’m starting to run out of excuses. 🙂
Hmm, not sure I will ever run out of excuses Jed! Have a great week. 🙂
I have never tried tripe. I may just HAVE to do this 🙂
I would love to hear what you think of it Sydney. Have a great day. 🙂
I am still hesitant to try tripe. But when I look at the photo, it doesn’t really look bad at all. We will have to see if I try tripe in the coming year 🙂
I must say the picture does make it look a lot more appealing… I think. 😉 Have a great day Kay. 🙂
Bet you never thought you’d hear a redneck, country chef say this but…
Ewwww!!! (Triple Emphasis Added)
Hee hee, I couldn’t agree more! have a super day. 🙂
I’m guessing it’s beef tripe?? I looove tripe! I love the texture of it! Never had tripe cooked with white sauce though! Would love to give it a try!! yummyyy!
Yip, beef tripe it is. Hope you get to make this soon. Have a super day. 🙂
Yeah,,,I see the expression on your lips …well, that’s how much I LOVE TRIPE anyway…Hehhee just messing witcha…sorta
That was intended for Samology…hope she’s a sport.
I reckon. 🙂
Eek, now you have me worried… tripe stresses me you know. 🙂
That looks really great 🙂 It’s something I’m very intrigued to try 🙂
I’m sure you would enjoy it Tes. Have a super day. 🙂
My grandfather had a Tripe Factory, he was know as a Tripe Purveyor. I used to work there in the summer holidays in England and I can still remember how bad it smelled! Consequently I will never ever eat the stuff, I have flung green cow’s stomachs into a big van, I have seen the acid baths that make it white……did I mention the smell???!!! 🙂
It is absolutely the smell that is off putting Sue – the very reason I cannot stomach the thought of putting it to my lips! Have an awesome afternoon. 🙂
You are a very brave brave girl. So what did you think about the taste? Did you like it? BAM
Oh no Bam, I am not THAT brave – I have not and shall not taste it – just cant! So, sorry, I cannot tell you what I think about the taste. Have a great day. 🙂
Now you are making me laugh! You know I am a pretty brave girl and try many things that most will not. I live in Asia so that right that probably sums it all up right there. But there is one thing I will NOT eat and that is tripe. I think it is the whole texture thing. Well maybe if lost on a deserted island ? but maybe not. Take Care, BAM
Think I would sooner eat a cactus thorny bits and all if I was stranded on a deserted island. Have a lovely day Bam. 🙂
tripe! now that is something I have never had before. It doesn’t look as intimidating as it sounds! I love the simplicity
It’s the smell that is quite intimidating more than anything else Belle. Have a great day. 🙂
You did ask about a subscriber facility, it’s up and hopefully running!
Awesome – I am on my way over right away…
Hmm, still no confirmation email – hope I am subscribed.
Sorry – I just can’t do tripe. Ewwwwww. I’ve even tried snake (and promply spit it out – very lady like of course) but I’m not trying this! Your photo is pretty however 🙂
It’s amazing how us non-tripers are very passionate about disliking it Tricia. Have a super day. 🙂
I read your recipe with and honestly thought you loved this recipe and loved tripe… scrolled down and read your replies and had a great laugh! I’m impressed that you would post a recipe for your Dad… and one that you dislike so much!! You’re a good sport! I’ve never tasted tripe.. I’d have to order it on a menu and I always see other dishes much more appealing;)
Thanks Smidge. Yip, I am very much on the side of the fence that is not willing to have tripe near my lips. Have a super day. 🙂
Mandy, Triple is one of the foods that definitely gets love or hate responses. My husband loves it…I agree with you!
Nice to have you in my camp Karen. Have a super weekend. 🙂
