Chinese-Style Beef Tripe

Tender cooked morsels

We've ordered a version of this dish from one of our favorite Chinese restaurants. The beef tripe starts out tough but is braised until tender in soy sauce, onion, and garlic. Here's the recipe:

What you will need:

1 sauce pan w/ lid
1 wooden spoon
2 1/2 lbs honeycomb tripe, cut into small pieces
1 small yellow onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbspns soy sauce
1 cup water
1 green pepper
2 tbspns raw peanuts, crushed
2 tbspns fresh cilantro, minced
Pinch of salt and pepper

Cooking & Directions:

Place all ingredients in sauce pan at medium-high heat. Cover with lid. Bring to a slow simmer then reduce heat to medium-low heat. Let ingredients slowly braise for 1 hour and 30 minutes (adding additional water as needed). Stir in fresh cilantro at end of cooking time. Serve topped with crushed peanuts.
