Shkembe chorba is a tripe soup that is made of calf (cattle) stomach. The tripe is the thick lining of the stomach of cattle. It is cleaned well and cooked with milk, garlic, vinegar, hot chili peppers, and other spices. This soup is very delicious and quite common across Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Due to the combination of water, fats, salt, and vinegar used in the preparation, which are known to reduce gastrointestinal discomfort associated with hangovers, this soup is very well known as a hangover remedy.
