Beef Tripe tastes great when cooked properly and mixed with the right ingredients. This Easy Callos Recipe is a good example, aside from Kare-kare. I like this recipe because it is straightforward and makes use of ingredients that we can easily find in the supermarket.
I started out by cleaning the beef tripe. I did this by washing it in running water. I also and made sure that the walls of the tripe are clear, so I used a brush to clean it up. Once the tripe is clean, it is time to make the tripe tender. My shortcut is to use a pressure cooker. I do this by first slicing then placing it in a pressure cooker with a couple cups of water and some salt. A good 40 to 50 minutes will do to ensure that the tripe is tender — then we are ready to cook it with the rest of the ingredients.
Making Easy Callos Recipe is so much easier than you think. We had a hint on the recipe name itself. Simply heat-up the oil then saute the onion, peppercorns, tripe, and Chinese sausage. Next is to add the sauces and pork and beans. I used canned pork and beans as an alternative to garbanzos or chickpeas. Both ingredients work well, the choice is yours.
The rest is simply adding the remaining ingredients making sure that the dish taste great. Enjoy it with rice,Pita, or just by itself. I think that it taste better if you add a tablespoon of hot sauce.
