Tripe Is Stinky

As I learned through trial and error in preparing gialla, overseas tripe has a much stronger odor than tripe available in Japan.
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.

Naturally, if you use the Japanese recipe, the smell will be too strong to eat. So, here is a method of preparation that will thoroughly remove the smell.

Soak in Milk

The most important thing is milk. Just soaking them in milk will reduce the smell considerably. Even if you think it doesn’t smell bad, it is safe to soak it for at least 30 minutes. If the smell is too strong, replace the milk and repeat a couple of times for a much better result.

Plenty of Ginger

Boil it quickly to remove the lye, then boil it with a lot of ginger. You can also add onions. In Japan, they say to use the green part of the Japanese spring onion, but unfortunately we don’t have it here.

Protect the House from Smell!

This is a great way to get rid of odors. In particular, it makes a big difference with the milk. If you start with boiling, the smell of the tripe will fill the whole house. I know you don’t want to get sick before you eat it. I recommend dipping them in milk.
