It's an easy and popular Beef Tripe. The seared chourico and smoked bacon, the beans and the slow-cooked delicious sauce would satisfy most people. Tripe isn’t very common in North American cuisine and it’s definitely acquired. It’s the appearance and soft rubbery consistency of the tripe that is turning on. This isn’t really a dish though there are many hearty meals similar to this. This is perfect Portuguese comfort food that’ll hit the spot on a cold winter day.
