How To Make Tripe Italian Style
Tripe is a popular dish in several Italian regions and that is most commonly known in Latin American countries as buseca. Its main ingredient is beef tripe, and also contains potatoes, chorizo, tomatoes and some spices and vegetables. It's a hearty stew to warm you up on the coldest days of the year. This OneHowTo article will show you how to make tripe Italian style step by step.
Before you start, if you're going to use dry beans and not precooked beans from a tin, you'll need to boil them the previous day for a couple of hours. The best way to tell if they're ready is to prick them from time to time until they feel soft. The same goes with the tripe, as sometimes when you buy it precooked it's not as it should be.
Once the tripe and the beans are both soft, it's time to start cooking the meat and removing the fat.
While you wait for the meat to degrease, you can wash the vegetables and cut them into thin pieces with a knife.
Add the cuts of meat bit by bit, as shown in the picture. Then you can add salt to taste. Add the chorizo last.
Once you've added all the meat, pour a glass of red wine over the top, as this will help to remove the fat. When the meat is nearly ready, it will begin to look like this.
Once the meat is cooked, add the onion, pepper and carrots. Then begin to stir all the ingredients together so that the vegetables move to the bottom of the pan.
In the meantime you can chop up the green vegetables with a knife.
Add them to the pan and sprinkle with pepper, paprika and any other spices that you like. Now add the chopped potatoes, tripe and beans, and let it simmer until the potatoes are tender. It's as simple as that! Your Italian style tripe is now ready to serve.
