Fish and grin and I were talking about home cooked menudo. Nothing like the fresh stuff compared to the canned. So, does anyone have any good menudo recipe's they would like to share with us?
sounds like mine. but i get the already cut at HEB i thinkI've been making it for years. I made menudo from scratch but i always get different results.
I now use Fiesta seasoning which comes in a bottle. I'll use 3 bottles because my wife likes it spicy. You can just add and make it to your taste.
Buy your 10lbs or how ever much you want to make. Cut into small squares bit size and clean all fat off of the menudo.
Just boil and add spices to your taste. comes out great.
X2. By dumping the water from the first boil, you get rid of the smell, and the grease that floats on the top. Now during the second boil, add the spices and hominy. Boil until the tripe is really soft. For added taste when serving, add minced onion, cilantro(coriander), and a wedge of lime.Also, the tripe already comes cut up but its kinda of big for me so i clean the fat off and cut the big pieces again
I boil the tripe for about 20mins. then clean all the fat that floats to the top then i dump the water that way it is clean. I then start my boil. I dont throw the bottle of spices in until the tripe begins to get soft. Thats probably after an hour of the boil.
Good luck. Its easy if you use the bottle.
