1 tbsp vegetable oil
¼ cup onions, chopped
1 tbsp garlic, minced
¼ cup ginger, sliced in strips
¼ cup bell pepper, minced
1-2 piece green chillies/labuyo, chopped

Clean the innards and brush the tripe well until thoroughly clean. For tripe: traditional way of cleaning is washing, brushing and rinsing it many times. For intestine, make sure to really clean it well.
In a pot of water, boil beef and beef innards with some vinegar, salt and pepper. Drain and discard water. Set aside and slice in strips once cooled.
In a pan, sauté onions, garlic and ginger until fragrant for about 3 minutes. Then add in beef strips and assorted innards. Stir fry until slightly brown.
Toss in bell pepper, green chillies and black beans and stir fry for a few minutes.
Pour in sukang tuba, soy sauce and beef broth. Bring it to a boil and simmer over low heat until cooked through for about 10-15 minutes.
Season with patis, pepper and calamansi juice. Garnish with lots of chopped spring onions. Serve it hot and enjoy!
Note: The fermented black beans is already salty, so adding of patis is just optional. Adjust according to taste preference.
