This nutritious and budget-friendly Mzansi favourite can be found on the menu in millions of homes around the country.

To ensure your mogodu recipe bursts with the mnandi flavours you remember from childhood, we’re sharing some tips on what to do to cook it so well that it will make your kitchen the go-to destination every Mogodu Monday!

A Tasty and Nutritious Local Favourite

Mogodu or tripe is a traditional South African dish that has delighted generations with its rich flavours and cultural significance, often being prepared for umcimbis and large community gatherings. However, mogodu isn't just a delicious dish that’s ideal for cooking for large numbers of guests, it also offers nutritional benefits that make it a wholesome addition to your diet. Tripe is a rich source of protein, vitamins and minerals, making it a great choice of protein for a variety of nutrients. Some of its reported benefits include supporting muscle growth, aiding digestion and providing essential nutrients for overall well-being.

So incorporating mogodu into a balanced diet allows you to enjoy its flavours while providing your family with nourishment.

However, despite how popular this traditional protein dish is and how much it’s consumed around the country, getting the delicate cooking method right, can be hard. Fortunately, you don’t need to worry because whenever you need to fak’ iflavour, Knorrox is to the rescue.

From soups to grills and sishebos to pasta salads, whatever the meal, the Knorrox range can deliver a rich nyama taste and umsoco to transform your meal times into moments that leave everyone asking for more! With Knorrox by your side, let’s explore the steps to ensure your mogodu is filled with irresistible meaty flavour every time.

Tips to Ensure Mouth-Watering Mogodu

When it comes to how to cook tripe perfectly, the key lies in the preparation, which all begins with sourcing fresh and high-quality ingredients. Finding tender and flavourful tripe can be a challenge, but you simply need to look out for tripe that is pale in colour and odourless to find good quality. Make sure you get it from suppliers you trust to ensure its good quality.

Once you have your fresh tripe, follow this simple guide to clean and prepare your mogodu the right way.

Once it’s ready for cooking, the next step is to focus on the seasoning for your tripe recipe. For this step, Knorrox has got you covered with a range of quality, rich and meaty spices, soup powders, stock cubes and more. To fak’ iflavour emnandi to your mogodu for a meal the whole family will love, here’s what to do.

1. Once your tripe is cleaned and ready for cooking, let it boil in water with your choice of Knorrox stock powder to begin enriching the mogodu.

2. Then, separately, dissolve your favourite Knorrox Stock Cube flavour in hot water. We recommend the Knorrox Chilli Beef or Knorrox Oxtail flavour to add a rich, meaty taste to your mogodu dish.

3. Then, once the tripe is tender, add the stock liquid and some Knorrox soup to your pot to help thicken your tripe sishebo and finish off infusing it with a meaty taste. For exact measurements, follow this Mogodu recipe, perfect for catering for large gatherings.

With Knorrox as your cooking partner, your journey to mogodu mastery is smoother than ever. From simmering potjies to scrumptious bites, every step is infused with an authentic meaty taste that celebrates South Africa’s heritage.
