4 lbs cleaned pork chitterlings

How To Cook The Chitterlings
Cooking chitterlings is very easy. After cleaning your chitterlings and eliminating the foul smells, the next step is to cook your chitterlings.
Fill your 6-quart pot with cold water and place the chitterlings inside it.
Begin to boil it, season it with salt, crushed red peppers, jalapeños, and garlic, and then add the onion. Make sure that before adding seasonings, the water is boiling very well to prevent the chitterlings from becoming tough.
Put the pot on the stove and cover the pot. Increase the level of heat and continue to boil it. Let it boil for about 10 minutes, then reduce it to a medium level.
Continue to simmer over medium heat for 3 to 4 hours until it becomes as tender as you like them.
Cleaning and Handling Raw Chitterlings:
Soak chitterlings in cold water throughout the cleaning stage. Each chitterling should be examined and run under cold water and all foreign materials should be removed and discarded. Chitterlings should retain some fat, so be careful to leave some on. After each chitterling has been cleaned, soak in two cold water baths for a few minutes. The second water bath should be clearer. If not, soak in one more bath.
Be sure to wash any surfaces with a bleach-based sanitizer and your hands thoroughly with soap to avoid contamination while handling raw chitterlings.
