Tripe is the general term for beef stomach, consisting of four parts, of which honeycomb tripe is meatier and more tender and considered to be the best. Tripe is almost always sold bleached and partially cooked. This saves a lot of work, since unprocessed tripe would need to be cooked for many, many hours to make it tender enough to chew.
