Tripe Shop?

Recommended Posts

I tried some a few years ago after remembering older relatives eulogising about tripe and onions after the cinema on a Saturday night pre war.

It was disgusting.

There was a tripe shop on Radford Road in the 70's, always used to smile at the sign in the window 'Quality Tripe'. I didn't even know what an oxymoron was either.....

Well I love it, especially after a pot or two. Tripe, onions and a pile of Smash in a big basin. Yummy.

I often used to pass Sandersons on Arkwright St, the tripes would be on hooks hanging in the window. Just the thought of it makes me shudder.

Did Sandersons not have a shop on Hyson Green, near Beaconsfield Street. Run by Mrs Ryan ?

Anyone got any recipes for this apart from the bin?

Tripe is disgusting. I can't see any merit in it whatsoever. My parents used to eulogise over it pre war when they went to Tom Sanderson's tripe shop after the cinema. I saw some at the butcher's one Saturday and brought it home for lunch. Nobody would touch it!

  1. Boil the tripe squares in water for 15 minutes then drain. Add the onions and enough milk to cover and cook for two hours over low heat.
  2. Melt the butter and flour together and stir to create a thick paste then slowly whisk in the milk form the tripe to create a white sauce. Season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the tripe squares, reheat and serve.
  4.  
  5. Only then do you chuck it in the bin!

  7. Tripe legends:
  8. Tripe juice is good for a hangover.

    Tripe increases libido.

    Wrap your head with tripe and cover with a swimming cap for a cure for hair loss.

  9. Anyone want to try one  and report back to us?

My mum used to cook tripe occasionally but only Dad enjoyed it.  I quite liked the milk and onion ‘gravy’ though.

Ok here's one that's different. Sauté a finely chopped carrot, stick of celery and 1/2 an onion , add capers ( optional) raisins, pine nuts, chopped up tripe, white wine and tomato ( tin) add a bit of sugar to counteract the acidity of the capers if using and cook for about 1/2 hr.

My daughter used to have to cook it as it's very popular here, she couldn't stand the taste and smell of it but now she loves it and always brings my husband some when she cooks it.

All that recipe does is to conceal the taste and smell of the tripe. Why not leave it out altogether and bin it? :biggrin:

Tom Sanderson had a tripe shop opposite the Elite, a Black and white painted building

I attended Henry Mellish grammar school in Bulwell from 1951 to 56.  Mr G E Goodall (known to everyone as GEG) was a wonderful maths teacher and if anyone offered a poor answer in class he was often told to 'Take it to Tom Sanderson. He'll have far more use for it than me.'  ie it was tripe :)

I started Mellish in ‘54 so GEG had retired by that time but his memory lingered on. You we’re probably in the same year as Bill Brazier who came from Daybrook. He’s my neighbour and lives a few hundred yards down the lane from me.
