Doing a little research on tripe. Some sources refer to it as a muscle, but it seems like it would be an organ. Most of the sources I can find on tripe on the web are dog food forums, so I'm hoping to get an answer from a culinary source. I already checked in Jennifer McLagan's Odd Bits book, and she doesn't classify it either way.
