Romanian tripe soup

One of the best Romanian soups (the best ever!!) is a traditional Romanian tripe soup. From my own “experience” and as everybody is saying, this is THE BEST remedy for a hungover. It’s very easy to make and the results are amazing.


  • 1kg  tripe
  • 1kg pork/beef bones (I used pork riblets)
  • 10 eggs (yolks only)
  • 2 heads of garlic (Yeah!!! It’s a lot)
  • 4 medium onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1 parsley root
  • 1/2 celery root
  • 500mg sour cream
  • 250mg 10% cream
  • 1-5 hot peppers (I used 3)
  • parsley for garnishing

I a soup pot with 6L of water and 1tbsp of salt, boil the tripe and the bones for 1h and then add all the vegetables chopped big chucks except the garlic. After everything is cooked, add 1 garlic head minced and boil for 2-3 minutes. Take out all the vegetables, bones and tripe and strain the soup. Add the tripe cut in medium size strips, add all the meat from the bones and simmer it on low temperature. In a medium bowl mix with the blender the yolks, half of the sour cream and the cream. While the soup is simmering, add slowly the mixture stirring continuously and boil it for another 15-20 minutes. Take the pot from the stove and add chopped fresh parsley and hot peppers. Serve with more sour cream, garlic and vinegar, to taste.

  1. În Franta, mâncarea de “burta” e populara si apreciata în multe regiuni, niciodata cu porc, dar prefer ciorba! 🙂 Cea din poza arata yummy-rau… Bon appétit! 🙂
