Ingredients (8-10 servings):
- 1.5 kg tripe precooked
- 1.5 kg turkey wings
- 3 medium onions
- 3-4 bay leafs
- 1 bulb of garlic
- 3 green chili peppers
- 3 celery stalks
- 200 g tomato puree
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
- 2 limes
- 1 kg of oyster mushrooms
- 1 medium red onion for garnishing
- a bunch of parsley or coriander leaves for garnishing
- salt and pepper to taste.
- Wash the tripe in 1-2 bowls of fresh water.
- Chop the onions. Or even if you just clean them, they will dissolve during the hours of boiling.
- Disjoint the turkey wings.
- Clean the garlic cloves.
- Add the tripe to a large cooking pot ( I used an open fire kettle, because I cooked outside). Fill with enough water to cover it . Start cooking.
- Add the turkey pieces, onion, garlic and bay leafs.
- Grille the green chili peppers, turning them a few times, until a bit charred on all their sides.
- Chop the grilled chili peppers.
- Cut the celery stalks in smaller pieces to fit the pot and add to the soup.
- Season with the sweet and hot paprika.
- Add the tomato puree and season with the oregano and some extra paprika if needed.
- Slice roughly the mushrooms to have sort of a similar shape with the tripe.
- When the tripe and turkey has cooked for about 90 minutes, add the chopped mushrooms to the kettle with the soup and continue to cook until the mushrooms are cooked, about another 30 minutes.
- Slice thinly the red onions.
- Chop the parsley.
- Cut the remaining lime into wedges.
- When the soup is cooked, serve while hot in soup bowls garnished with some chopped parsley (coriander/cilantro if you like it, but I do not 🙂 ), some slices of red onion and a wedge of lime.

I came across this recipe quite a time ago, but up till now whenever I found in shops oxtails, I was never in mood for cooking this dish.
Recently I had a free long weekend and I finally set my mind on it.
Ingredients (6 servings):
- 2 kg cow tail / oxtail
- 400 g canned tomatoes
- 1 l dry red wine (If Spanish is better 😉 )
- 150 g wheat flour

- 2 medium onions
- 1 bulb garlic
- 1 red bell pepper
- 2 teaspoon chopped ginger
- 50 ml olive oil
- 4 cloves
- 4 bay leafs
- salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Cut the tails at each joint, Season the bull tail with salt and pepper.
- Place the tail pieces in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and add enough red wine to cover them all and let them marinate for 30-60 minutes.
- Dice the onions, chop the garlic and ginger.
- Slice thinly the carrots.
- Slice thinly the red bell pepper.
- In a large cast iron pan heat olive oil over medium high heat.
- Remove the tails from the marinade drizzling down the liquid then dust them in flour, removing the excess flour.
- In batches, sear every piece of tail until browned on each side.
- Remove the bull tails from the pan and set them aside.
- Add a bit more oil to the pan and saute the onion and garlic for 5 minutes.
- Add the sliced bell pepper and sate 5 more minutes.
- Add the sliced carrots, bay leafs, cloves and ginger and saute 2 saute minutes.
- Place back the tail pieces into the pan, add the remaining wine and stock.

- Serve with french fries.
