With 20 years of experience, Woolworths senior product developer, Sharon Mbonambi is no stranger to the kitchen. For her, tripe invokes memories of her dad while she was growing up in Durban. She remembers how it was a well-loved dish by all the children she used to play with in her street. The smell of the tripe cooking would get them excited about dinner and once that happened, playtime was officially over. While ox tripe is traditionally cooked with salt, pepper, and onions, Sharon puts a twist on her recipe. She adds a spoonful of apricot jam at the end of the to give it a sweet-savoury flavour. Whenever she's feeling nostalgic or wants to relive memories she has of her father, she always cooks a pot of tripe to take her right back to those moments.


  • 2 T canola oil
  • 2 medium brown onions, chopped
  • ½ green pepper, chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, cut into 1.5 cm cubes
  • 2 T Woolworths medium curry powder

  • 1 t paprika
  • 400 g can Italian crushed tomatoes
  • 1 kg Woolworths slow cooked ox tripe
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 T smooth apricot jam
  • 3 x 410 g can Woolworths samp and beans, heated

Cooking Instructions

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat and sauté the onions, green pepper andpotatoes for about 8 minutes. Add the curry powder, garlic and paprika and cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the spices from catching.

2. Add the tomatoes and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes. Add the tripe, mix, season with salt and pepper and cook over low heat for about 30 minutes. Lastly, add the apricot jam and check the seasoning.

3. Serve hot with, pap or samp or steamed bread.
