Mix the flour with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper or paprika.
Heat up the oil in your wok to 375° F. Dredge the tripe in the flour and shake off excess flour. Slip the pieces of tripe into the hot oil. Do not crowd the tripe, deep-frying a few sections at a time. Deep-fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
