Today is a public holiday in Vienna, a Christian feast day, (Corpus Christi) or solemnity which honors the Body (corpus) of Christ (Christi).
It so happened both of us at are home (Hubby and I). I thought the company where he work would not allow him to have his day off today because of vaction time for the whole staff. Now it starts the rotation of summer vacation of all staff in his work. But anyway, we enjoyed the day today even only at home. Tomorrow he will be on duty again.
I cooked our lunch today, one among of his favorit the so called “PINAPAITAN”!
It is all innards from beef which I bought the last time we went to Matha Store, an India Shop.
Here I got this froozen “BILE” which is also from beef. Bile is the liquid from gall bladder which gives this bitter taste of “PINAPAITAN”.
Consist of 80% BEEF TRIPE, 10% of BEEF LIVER and 10% of BEEF HEART plus BEEF BILE!
* A piece of Beef Heart
* A piece of Beef Liver
* 250g Beef tripe
* A thumb-sized Ginger, peeled and cut into sticks
* 1 Onion
* 6 Cloves Garlic or Garlic powder

* Wash thouroughly and boil the meat until tender. Remove the broth and cut into thin sticks.
