Cooked Tripe in the Triangle?
- termite Aug 31, 2007 05:20 PM
According to my wonderful Hungarian cookbook (by Lang): "In almost every civilized country you can buy cooked tripe."
So, are we in the triangle civilized (despite not being a country)? Where can I get the stuff pre-cooked? I feel like a bit of a gastronomic adventure, but really don't want to make the entire house smell terrible by cooking a bunch of tripe for five hours....
If you're looking for non-menudo tripe (not that there is anything at all wrong with that), I think Vin Rouge is known to make it from time to time. I would certainly call first, of course.
Actually, I'm looking for pre-cooked tripe for a recipe, rather than just to eat some. A variety of sources say I should be able to get it pre-cooked from a butcher.
