Grass fed Tripe & tendon?

MissBubbles Apr 22, 2013 12:04 PM

For some reason this seems pretty hard to find. Any recommendations on the eastside of LA?

    Only thing you can do is buy whole beef! I could not get it before because the butcher told me that there are too many regulations so they don't carry tripe and tendon...Sorry for news - went through the same thing.

      Lindy and Grundy get whole grass fed pastured animals, so you should be able to get any parts you need, but they're in WeHo, not east side and they can be quite expensive.

        ya, that was my worry about them. I was hoping to find a more direct source.

          I see these guys at the farmers mkt in Mar Vista on Sunday. You'd probably need to special order, but they might be able to help. It appears to be farmer direct.

            They're at several farmers' markets, including Pasadena (Saturday), Altadena (Wednesday) and Studio City (Sunday). I don't specifically recall seeing tripe, but they do have tendon (listed on their web site). Unless they use it for something else, I would expect that they have tripe, too.

              Indeed, recently confirmed that Dey Dey's has both tripe & tendon, but not all of the time.

                Hi Jack - just wondering if you have to buy whole beef to get tripe and tendon, or does Dey Dey sell them separately? Thanks.

                  No, they just sell parts (though I think you can order portions of a cow online). At various farmers' markets. Also online.
