Tripe Soup

(Iskembe Corbasi)

Tripe Soup
250 gr veal tripe, washed with water and soap several times using a brush
4-5 cups water
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp all purpose flour
1 egg yolk

2 garlic cloves, smashed with salt
4-5 tbsp wine vinegar with raspberry juice, or another type of vinegar

Cook the tripe with water and salt for about 1.5 - 2 hours or until tender. If you like you may use a pressure cooker to cook in a shorter time. Remove the foam from the surface. Take the cooked tripe out of the water (keep the water) and cut in bite sized chunks over a cutting board.

Melt the butter, add the flour, stir and slowly pour about 2 cups of warm boiled water while stirring constantly. They should blend very well. Then add in the tripes. Cook 15-20 minutes over a little bit under medium heat.

Take a few spoons of liquid from the pot and blend well with the egg yolk in a bowl. Then slowly pour the mixture into the pot while stirring very slowly. Cook for 3-4 more minutes over medium heat. If it is too thick add a little bit more boiled water. Pour the soup into the bowls.

Mix the garlic and vinegar in a small bowl and pour one tablespoon into the soup. Serve this traditional Turkish Tripe Soup while still hot.

2 servings.

Meal Ideas:
- Kidney Beans with Lamb, Turkish Rice Pilaf, Celery Root with Olive Oil and Dried Figs with Walnuts.

Dear Binnur,
Thank you for sharing your well-kept secrets of Turkish Food.
It was a great idea to publish a book which includes so many delicious meal options. However, this should not prevent us from printing rest of your recipes. Since the initial motive for creating this blog is to share your recipes, I urge you to allow access for copy-paste functioning and/or printing.
