How to make tripe and onions:
A very famous Northern England dish. Definitely not for the squeamish!


1lb dressed tripe
pepper and salt
4 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1 pint milk
2 large onions, peeled and chopped
sprig of parsley
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Wash the tripe and cover with cold water in a saucepan.
- Bring to the boil and then simmer for 15 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and pour away the water.
- Put the tripe into a clean saucepan and add the milk and onions.
- Bring to the boil and then simmer for 2 hours over a very low heat.
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat and add the flour.
- Then add the milk from the tripe and make a white sauce.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Add the tripe (and onions if liked) to the sauce and reheat.
- Serve garnished with parsley.
