To be honest with you, I’m not the biggest fan of offal meals, however, there are some that I can hardly resist, because they are cooked in such a delicious way. I mean tripe recipe.

Do you know how to cook beef tripe? This traditional Beef Tripe is one of my favorite dishes from the Caribbean cuisine. I remember eating it a couple of times in restaurants when we were vacationing in the Caribbean and back then I vowed to myself that I have to have the recipe. There are not so many recipes for cooking tripe.

And here it goes. What is beef tripe? Beef tripe has a unique and peculiar texture and looks a bit like emptied out honeycomb to me. The stew itself is think and ridiculously intense flavorwise, in a very good, satisfying way.

I’m sure you’ll love this beef tripe recipe.

It usually takes a long time for the beef tripe to become tender, so I’d recommend cooking this in Instant Pot or any other pressure cooker.
Probably the most hard to come by ingredient in this soup is plantains. They are a type of banana-like… fruit? they are green, they have much less sugar than your regular type of bananas and they are absolutely grand for stews that need to be thick, because of their natural starch.

They also provide a unique flavor for this soup. Okra is another ingredient that is not usually sold at your local grocery store, but if you have access to any Asian or Mexican supermarket, they should have it alright. As for flour dumplings – I usually buy them in a store as well.

Follow the instructions below and I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
