This cut of meat tastes like a beef tenderloin or a petite tender cut. It has more fat than a filet mignon, which makes it taste way better. It may not have the tenderness of a great filet, but it’s packed with more flavor.
The reason this meat tastes so good is that it comes from a portion of the cow that has very little tough connective tissue. It is the muscle that connects the humerus to the back of the shoulder blade.
