beef tripe, sliced
garlic, minced
onion, chopped
ginger, crushed
pork and beans
5 tbsp soy sauce
ground black pepper


1. Boil tripe with water, ginger and salt until it is tender (remove fat)
2. Replace water and reboil, when fat has been removed
3. Slice tripe lenghtwise
4. Saute garlic and onion
5. Add tripe, soy sauce and pepper then stir fry for ten minutes
6. Add pork and beans, then sugar

I don't know how to make Callos and before I made this, I have never handled TRIPE (ever in my life). I am not even sure how Callos is supposed to taste like, so this is really stupid of me. I picked this recipe because even though it did not seem legit, it was easy, and I thought --- I am cooking for just three people (Bon, Monique and I) so I don't really have to impress culinary experts, who will have so much to say. In fact, almost anything I serve to these two is well appreciated, so I wasn't really worried. 

Boiling the tripe was very tricky. I did not know that it was going to take so long and I spent hours waiting for it to soften (if I remember right, I think it took me more than 6 hours). A friend told me that I was going to be in trouble --- it takes her family two days to create Callos, but I told her, this is not the real Callos so she doesn't have to worry. 

I would add a small pack of tomato sauce, if I am going to do this again because the pork and beans was quite dominant. I boiled the tripe, very well, though --- so I did well with that. Hopefully, next time, I will get to try the more difficult recipe and I will write about it, For now, though, I hope this is good enough.
