Note from Delish:

One of the local restaurants here in Iloilo City serves callos. And I’d say I love it. So I decided to learn how to make one at home. Others may add ox feet to this dish to add more flavor.

When boiling the ox tripe, you can use pressure cooker to shorten the process. Regular boiling may take an hour or two.
