Beef 4th Stomach Abomasum, Prepared for Stew

ad
I had a strong urge to eat cow offal in Finland. It is a familiar food in Japan, we eat it stewed or grilled.
I looked around and came across tripe in a Middle Eastern market. It says “tripe” on it, but it’s abomasum. The smell got me at first, but I managed to find a way to prepare it in peace.
Enjoy Beef Tripe Overseas
Japanese people eat offals as grilled or stewed. I want enjoy delicious tripe abroad! This is my story of struggle to eat tripe in Finland.
If you prepare them in bulk, you can freeze them and use them little by little. I like to make a slightly spicy tomato stew with it.

Beef 4th Stomach Abomasum, Prepared for Stew

When preparing abomasum, it is not wise to boil it from the beginning. Soaking abomasum in milk and boiling it with celery is an easy way.

INSTRUCTIONS
NOTES
*1
I bought the abomasum at a Middle Eastern market. I thought it was the second stomach because it said “tripe” and “trippa”, but it was abomasum, 4th stomach.
[].
 
*2
I tried boiling it with vinegar, but I don’t recommend it because it didn’t remove much of the smell, even though the room was filled with the smell.
There is also a method of boiling them down, but I haven’t tried it because I learned that boiling them makes the room full of smell.
 
*3
I tried ginger and green parts of green onions, but celery was the best at covering the smell.
 
*4
There is no need to boil it for a long time because the smell is pretty much removed when it is soaked in milk.
 
*5
Cut into pieces as you like. You can enjoy the texture of abomasum more if you cut it into chunks, but if you are worried about the smell even though it has been prepared, I recommend cutting it into small pieces.
