Beef Sirloin:

Another tender cut, beef sirloin is an excellent choice for roasting or barbecuing.

Beef Tenderloin:

Possibly the finest cut of beef, the beef tenderloin is found inside the loin, and is where we get filet mignon, which is made from the very tip of the pointy end of the tenderloin (as seen above). Chateaubriand is made from the center cut of the tenderloin.

Beef tenderloin should only be cooked using dry heat methods such as grilling and broiling.
