  • 3 shallots unpeeled
  • 4 ounces whole fresh ginger, unpeeled
  • 8 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • Salt
  • 1 pound tripe and tendons
  • 1/2 pound flank steak

Tie the charred vegetables, star anise, garlic cloves, and cinnamon stick in a damped cheesecloth. Add the spice bag and parsnips to the simmering broth. Season the broth with salt and pepper.
