The temperature here in Chicago dropped drastically over the past weeks. Snow turned into ice, while the wind continues to whistle its frigid tunes. They wouldn’t have called it the windy city for nothing.
While I’m lazily slouching at the couch watching my favorite Food Network shows (Iron Chef America good, but I find Chopped to be more entertaining), I thought of making some beef stew to make myself warm. I’m not sure if I have all the ingredients and I don’t plan to drive on ice. This is the time when online grocery shopping and delivery services such as Peapod come-in handy.
I needed some beef parts such as brisket or sirloin, some onions, tomatoes, a little dried thyme, and I also need to move my lazy bones. Good thing I still all of the needed ingredients in my inventory like a pound of beef brisket, a can of diced tomatoes, some onions, and dried thyme (except moving my lazy bones). I did not need to order groceries online at that point.
Callos or ox tripe stew is a Filipino-Spanish dish made from ox tripe and veal shanks (ox feet). The tripe and shanks are boiled and simmered until the texture becomes extra tender; this makes eating this dish pleasurable. Different vegetables can also be added but the commonly used are carrots, chick peas (garbanzos), and bell pepper.
I like this dish because of its texture. The extra tender tripe and fat from the ox feet literally melts in your mouth while the luscious taste of chorizo and bacon lingers around – inviting you to try more. Though it looks and sounds enticing (which it does), moderation is still recommended because of the high fat and cholesterol content of this dish. It is good to enjoy food but it is better to enjoy life.
