Tripe and Tomatoes Recipe

History and Fun Facts:
Tripe is a type of meat that comes from the stomach lining of various animals, commonly beef. It has a long history in culinary traditions around the world. In many cultures, tripe has been a popular ingredient in dishes for centuries. It is often used to make hearty stews and soups due to its texture and ability to absorb flavors. In this recipe, we will be combining the rich flavors of tripe with the freshness of tomatoes for a delicious and comforting meal.


- 2 lbs. Tripe
- 1 doz. Tomatoes
- 1/2 pint Water or Stock
- 1 oz. Cornflour
- 1 Onion
- Pepper and Salt


1. Cut the tripe into neat pieces. It is important to start with clean and trimmed tripe. Rinse it well and remove any excess fat or gristle.

2. Place the tripe in a large pot of cold water. Bring the water to a boil and let it boil for five minutes. This helps to remove any impurities and gives the tripe a head start in the cooking process.

3. Remove the tripe from the boiling water and transfer it to a bowl of cold water. Wash and scrape the tripe thoroughly to ensure it is clean.

4. Slice up the tomatoes and pass them through a sieve to remove the skins and seeds. This will give us a smooth tomato puree that will form the base of our sauce.

5. In a saucepan, combine the tomato puree with the water or stock. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Slice the onion and add it to the saucepan along with the tripe. The onion will add a nice aroma and flavor to the dish.

7. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Allow it to gently simmer for four hours. This long cooking time will help tenderize the tripe and allow the flavors to meld together.

8. In a separate bowl, mix the cornflour with a little water or stock to form a smooth paste. This will serve as a thickening agent for the sauce.

9. Pour the cornflour mixture into the saucepan and stir well. Allow the mixture to come to a boil. The sauce will thicken slightly, creating a rich and velvety texture.

10. Carefully dish the tripe into serving bowls or plates. Season and flavor the sauce to taste, adding additional salt, pepper, or any other desired seasonings.

11. Pour the sauce over the tripe, ensuring that each portion is generously coated. The combination of the tender tripe and flavorful tomato sauce creates a delicious and satisfying dish.

12. Serve the tripe and tomatoes hot, accompanied by some crusty bread or rice to soak up the flavorful sauce. Enjoy!
