Does anyone know where we can find some beef or lamb stomach? Not sure if it's the right term in English - "panse" is what we're looking for. We didn't find any at Boucherie Lawrence or the standard supermarkets.
Couldn't you order it at Lawrence ? Me think it would be one of their "thing"
I'd check the chinese (and/or asian) stores.
In English, it's called the rumen, paunch or first stomach. Maximilien's suggestions are good ones. You might also ask at Greek, Arab or Latino butchers (since they may not know the name in French or English, take along a diagram so you can show them what you want).
Do you use the term 'tripe' in Canada?
USA stores usually only sell honeycomb tripe. But I large Chinese grocery that I frequent also sells 'book tripe'. Both names allude to the appearance of the inner surface. I've never seen a full stomach (or rather all of one of the 4 parts).
A middle eastern butcher would be your best bet for sheep's stomach.
describes the 4 kinds of tripe, and gives French terms.
In an Asian grocery (California/Chinese) I have the choice of:
pig's foot - front, rear, long and short cut
(long cut includes all or part of the shank and hock)
Foot can also be cut in different ways - lengthwise or cross wise, or not at all.
Middle eastern/Indian butchers sell 'paya' - lamb and/or goat.. That's shank rather than foot.
Then there's chicken and duck feet; and boneless chicken feet.
