Recipe
Ingredients

4 calf hooves
2 lbs. calf stomach
2 garlic cloves
Salt
Pepper
Paprika

Instructions

It is best to buy the calf feet already cleaned, if possible. Otherwise, soak the feet in boiling water to loosen the shoe; then take off the shoe from each foot.

Singe all the hair and scrape off the rest with the edge of a knife. Wash everything very thoroughly. Soak the feet and stomach in water overnight.

Cut the stomach into about 1-inch squares. Cook them for about 10 minutes in water. Drain, and then cook them for an additional 15 minutes in a fresh pot of water.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Make sure to skim the scum off the top (that’s what makes the dish bitter).

Serve with lemon juice or vinegar, or have it with flatbread.
