Callos

Boiling the tripe in water and vinegar only helps to clean the tripe and remove the unpleasant smell or gamey taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilo beef tripe, cleaned and cut into pieces
  • 1 cup Molinera White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 whole pork trotter (foot), trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 whole onions, quartered 1 head garlic, crushed
  • 3 pieces bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. peppercorns
  • 1⁄4 cup Molinera Pure Olive Oil
  • 1⁄4 kilo bacon slab, chopped
  • 1⁄4 kilo Jamón Serrano chopped
  • 1⁄4 kilo chorizo, cut in chunks
  • 1 tsp. paprika (pimenton)
  • 2 cans Molinera Natural Chick Peas
  • 1⁄4 kilo morcilla, cut into thick slices

Procedure

  1. Soak the beef tripe in cold water with the MOLINERA WHITE WINE VINEGAR for 20 minutes, then rinse. Cut into 3-inch cubes. Do this even if the beef tripe bought was already clean.
  2. In a big pot, boil the beef tripe and pork trotter in salted water. After the first boil, discard the water. Rinse the meats to remove all froth and scum. Do this twice.
  3. In the same pot, put new water then add the tripe, pork trotter, onions, half of the garlic, bay leaf, salt and peppercorns. Boil for about 2 to 3 hours. When the meat is almost tender, lower the heat and let simmer.
  4. In a frying pan, fry the remaining garlic in MOLINERA PURE OLIVE OIL. Add the chopped bacon, Jamón Serrano and chorizo. Stir in paprika. Add this to the tripe mixture and let boil for 20 minutes.
  5. Add the MOLINERA NATURAL CHICK PEAS and the morcilla. Simmer for 3 minutes.
  6. In serving callos, the pork trotter is discarded after cooking and is not served. It is only used for flavor and to thicken the soup. Serve with slices of French bread.

Tip:

Boiling the tripe in water and vinegar only helps to clean the tripe and remove the unpleasant smell or gamey taste. Callos is a good party dish as it is quite filling and can be served to a large group of people.
