tripas, buche, and other parts of the cow

tastycakes | Feb 2, 2009 03:07 PM

can anyone explain which parts of the cow these meats come from? and what can be referred to as tripe or tripas across cultures? i see a wide variety of textures and flavors in meat that is called tripe - in pho tripe is pale and crunchy, but i see it in tacos as tube-shaped and not as chewy.

it's all tasty, but i'm confused!! plus i want to make sure i order the right things....
