!!! Please note that kpomo (cow skin) can differ in colour and cut size, depending on the source it comes from.
Cow skin/Cowhide also known as kpomo is the covering of a cow processed and used for cooking many delicacies in west African countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, Cameroon etc, and also in west Indian and the Caribbean. It is a good weight loss meat that is unique with less calories and tastes nice when properly cooked in dishes. Cow skin is very hard to eat if not properly cooked and takes time to cook before eating.
Suitable for freezing
Preparation and Usage
- First and foremost, boil a pot with water to cover the cow skin over high heat.
- Secondly, remove from heat and transfer into a bowl of cold water to cool off. Thereafter, use a sharp knife in scraping out what is inside the Pomo.
- Furthermore, you can use an iron sponge bought specially for washing cow skin to remove any dark particles from the skin as you wash to brighten.
- Finally, after much cleaning of the cow skin, discard and change the water. Add fresh water and allow to soak in clean water for as long as you wish.
