Where is the recipe, Maggie? Busek is characteristic of Latin American cuisine, as the word means in Spanish tripe far as I know. Because tripe is of Italian Trippa. My colleague years ago wrote about Busek blog when working in Uruguay. And in Argentina, where it is now also made. I remember because it was written, how opinions are divided there - some consider it a delicacy, other waste.
