Ingredients
Method
 
  • 2 kg fresh ox tripe. Choose the smoothest thickest pieces you can find. Avoid the frilly sections.
  • 2 large onions chopped
  • 1 clove garlic crushed and chopped.
  • tbl spoon sea salt
  • half cup vinegar
  • half cup red wine
  • cup water
  • 2 to 3 fresh chillis chopped coarsley, seeds and all.
  • Tbl spoon coarse black pepper.
The recipe is simple. Put all the ingredients into a pressure cooker and cook for two hours. I have done it on the stove top and you are looking at about 5hrs that way. Overnight bubbling away slowly on a dover stove would be first prize. Traditionally it is cooked in a cast iron pot on a wood fire.
When it is cooked reduce the liquid to a thick gravy and serve the meal with rice or stiff maize porridge.

Tripe in Africa is nearly always uncleaned and requires extensive washing. Ingredients vary according to what is available, but this is a nice "average" recipe. If you can buy cleaned tripe, by all means use it. I make it from scratch and can give separate details on how to clean and prepare uncleaned tripe.
