Matumbo is one of my favourite Kenyan food.

Matumbo evokes me so many happy memories from my childhood, of family get-togethers. The men would make mutura (intestine sausages). The women, as in most African cultures, would clean the stinky innards, like tripe.

Some people from my Kikuyu tribe claim that leaving a bit of poo in the tripe gives it a richer flavour. To each their own. I like mine clean.

  ½ kgs pre-boiled lamb, goat or cow matumbo/tripe
 1 large onion, sliced thinly
 2 medium tomatoes
 1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce (optional)
 One bunch of coriander (chop the stems, save the leaves for garnishing)
 4 cloves of garlic
 Thumb size ginger
 Three hot chillies, more or less depending on your taste palette.
 500ml water (preferably beef stock)
