! Whew, I actually said it. Since the tenderloin is a muscle of posture, it does nothing for a living so no wonder it is the most tender of all muscles. I think that's all it's got going for it. To me, it does not have near the "beefy" flavor of other cuts. I'd take a ribeye over a tender any day(unless of course, you're buying
). I feel purged.
Definitely a good argument, but I would take a mid rare seared Tenderloin over sliced brisket any day of the week.
