İşkembe Çorbası (Turkish beef tripe soup)

İşkembe=Tripe. Çorbası= Soup. So, İşkembe Çorbası is soup with tripe as main ingredient and flavor seasoned with vinegar and lemon juice.
It's one from many kinds of other popular soup in Turkey beside Tarhana Çorba, Mercimek Çorba, ezo gelin Çorba , and many other Çorba (soup)...
Frankly, it's my 1st trial cooking this soup, and my 1st customer of course... my husband @(*_*)@ 

And while asked me to refill his 3rd bowl that 1st customer said.... " Çok Güzel Olmus!" ...(in English-more and less means "very good")
Well....If I can make it, I'm sure you can do it too... d(*_*)b
