Mealthy Tip

Tripe is the meat of a cow's stomach lining. It is important to thoroughly clean the tripe before cooking it. Rinse tripe under cold water until clean and trim excess fat before cutting into small pieces.

Substitute pork or other meat for beef chuck or leave it out and just use the tripe.

I grew up eating my grandmothers menudo, so I have super high standards. With that said, I really, really liked the stew. I followed the instructions to a tee and it was perfect. How the pressure cooker can inject so much flavor in such a short amount of time, it's magic! Can't wait to make this again soon.
