Default Beef shoulder steak?

Saw this at Costco last week.



What is this and is it any good? I also saw another cut at Costco I haven't seen before called beef tenderloin tails. Is that any good as well?

The second one you mentioned sounds like the tail ends (thin end) of the tenderloin. They should be nice and tender!

Beef tenderloin tails was $5.19 /lb at Costco Business Center. I thought the price was too cheap to be actual tenderloin. I might have to pick some up next week to test it out.

Shoulder steak is exactly that, a steak cut from the front shoulder. It has a lot of flavor, but it needs to be braised for a long time. All cuts are good, if they are treated properly.

Looking at the meat, it looks pretty tender so I'm wondering if it can be grilled whole like any other steak. At $8 /lb, it's not cheap cut.

It really depends on the cow, and where on the shoulder the steak came from, and how it is butchered. It is basically a chuck steak, but how it is trimmed makes a difference on tenderness. I don't know how much ribeye steak is there, but no way I would pay $8 for shoulder steak. It is good, has great flavor, but for grilling, not the best choice.

Another beef shoulder steak option is a top blade steak or flatiron steak, these are from the upper shoulder, the clod area, and became popular when the University of Nebraska started a marketing plan for this cut. It's said that by trimming out this particular steak, it can add $4 to $5 to the hoof price of each steer

I'm confused because it can't be London Broil because it's too expensive. Costco sells cheap London Broil separately and calls it London Broil. And I also saw Beef Shoulder Steak in cryovac bags at Costco Business Center for the first time so it's coming from the processing plant like this. The Business Center version was untrimmed so it's little cheaper and under $6 /lb.

Trimmed Choice ribeye steak is $10 /lb at regular Costco warehouse and untrimmed cryovac Choice ribeye is under $8 /lb at Costco Business Center.

I don't think Costco would be selling this beef shoulder steak at premium steak prices if this cut wasn't super tender. The way they trimmed and packaged this steak suggests it's to be grilled and not braised/smoked.

I'm familiar with top blade and flat iron steaks. They sell it at grocery stores here, and I butchered my own flat iron steaks out of beef shoulder clod I bought from Costco Business Center.
