Caen-style tripe

Recipe: Caen-style tripe

Caen-style tripe recipe.Les Tripes j’adore. Tripe à la mode de Caen, this time I present a variant with a raw cider, the last time I made, tripe in white wine. This Caen-style tripe recipe stands out a bit from the other recipe, I added a hint of balsamic vinegar, on the advice of my friend Catherine from Château de Roche. As the other recipe for cooking tripe à la mode de Caen, took place at night and in the oven, I find that the tripe à la mode de Caen baked in the oven are softer. Here is a Caen-style tripe recipe, rather easy to make, ask your butcher for blanched tripe, your Caen-style tripe will be even easier to make.
