1 Lemon (juice only)
2 tb Butter

1/4 c Chopped parsley

1 c Water
1/2 c Dry white wine

Wash tripe well, drain and cut into small squares or fingers. Place in a
dish, add lemon juice, stir and leave for 1 hour. Place tripe in pan, add
water to cover and bring to the boil. Drain off water and remove tripe
to a plate.
Clean pan and add butter. Melt over medium heat and add onion. Fry
gently until transparent. Stir in parsley, fry 1 minute, then add tomato
paste, water, wine and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a slow simmer.
Return tripe to pan, cover and simmer gently for 2 hours or until tripe is
tender. To test for tenderness, take out a piece and pull. If it breaks
apart easily, tripe is cooked.
Place in a serving dish, garnish with parsley and serve hot with pilaf and
a tossed salad.
