Fried Bopis!

I had a food trip with my friend Jess, which recently was the champion of our extra-rice challenge in Mang Inasal garnering ten extra-rice for the record. Our food trip route started in Marasbaras, a developing Barangay bordering the city from the next town, Palo. The street was filled of street food vendors, from barbecue, fried chicken, tempura and fish balls, balut and penoy, and bopis. Bopis is a spicy Filipino dish of pork lungs and heart sautéed in tomatoes, chilies and onions. 

This case however, bopis was beef and it was simply stir fried seasoned with salt and pepper. The vendor told us the bopis we ate were beef tripe. It was skewered in bite size pieces over tooth picks, which was Php 1.00 each. They had a vinegar dip with onions and garlic, giving the simple bopis flavor a twist. We had around thirty sticks before we tried other food in the place.

The recipe I would share is not the traditional bopis recipe, instead I will show you guys how the street food vendor prepared it.

Ingredients,
1. Beef Tripe
2. Beef Heart
3. Salt and Pepper
4. Garlic

For the dip, just mix it all together.
1. Vinegar
2. Chopped Onions
3. Lime Juice
4. Chili (Optional)

Procedure,
1. Boil bopis for about 5-7 minutes to make it tender.
2. Season it with garlic, salt and pepper.
3. Skewer with tooth pick, optional. Then fry it over high heat just to make it crispy for about 2-3 minutes.
4. Serve with the dip.
