Beef Tenderloin is a long cylindrical muscle cut from the middle of the cow right out of the short loin. The muscle tissue does very little work, so it is the most tender meat on the animal.
Tenderloin is very expensive, but there's little waste and it has a mellow beefy flavor.
It's easy to prepare, cooks quickly, and well suited for grilling, broiling, pan-searing, kabobs, and stir-fry.
Packaged whole and can be used as a roast or cut into medalions.
