    CAU CAU PERUVIAN CREOLE STYLE     

   Ingredients :
 
1 lb tripe
2 tablespoons milk
1 stalk of fresh mint
cup cooking oil
2 cups finely chopped onion
tablespoons minced or pulverized garlic
tablespoons cumin (preferably toasted to bring out the flavor)
Fresh yellow aji (chile pepper), pulverized, to taste
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
3 or 4 red potatoes, peeled, cooked, and cut into small square chunks
Juice of one lemon
Salt
Pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

   Preparation:

Place the tripe in a large covered pan and fill it with water to cover the tripe. Add the milk and the stalk of mint. Cover the pan slightly and cook over low-medium heat for about one hour until the tripe is very soft. Drain and let cool. Cut into small squares and reserve.

In a frying pan heat the oil, add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic, the cumin, the aji (chile pepper), the turmeric, and stir until well combined and cooked through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Stir in the cut tripe and the cooked potato chunks and bring the mixture to a simmer. Add the lemon juice and the chopped fresh mint; stir to combine well.

Serve accompanied by rice.
Note: if desired, substitute chicken for the tripe.
