Any idea if the tenderloin will be denuded? Great price nonetheless.

It almost never comes denuded from RCSS, at least never seen it at this price.

Yup, once you clean and cut it.

Filet mignon can't be from any other type of cut.

Thorncliffe Costco is selling whole tenderloin for $23.19/kg - that is more than SS but makes me wonder how good a sale SS is? I can’t recall if this is normal Costco pricing or they lowered it recently?

I ended up getting a SS tenderloin and based on prior experiences with their rib roast sales where I have found packages with weights much more than priced based on just “feel” that they were “wrong” I picked up three and weighed them in produce to confirm. This time one weighed perfectly and the other two were a couple hundred grams heavier than priced so a bargain. Not sure why they are so inconsistent - on one of the rib roasts I weighed last sale it was off close to $10 in value and you could tell just by picking two of them up that were supposed to be the same weight. I made the butcher reprice it for others but have been cautious ever since. Today they were giving back.

The Loblaws special is advertised as only being at least AA (a lower grade of beef).

For the tenderloin it doesn't really make a difference. Grading is based largely on the marbling in the meat, but tenderloin has basically no marbling, so the difference between AA and AAA tenderloin, if any, is negligible.
I regularly buy the ungraded tenderloin at Costco Business Centre for far cheaper than graded and I've never seen a difference (the same absolutely cannot be said for their other ungraded meats).

I picked up one of the AA tenderloins from Loblaws yesterday and it looks great. it'll be making, among other things, beef wellington and I'm already sure it'll be amazing.

Which AAA would be.

Probably what Mtx is wondering is whether it is the actually the same meat (grade and all).
I'm suspicious too.
The wording allows them an out.

SS and Loblaws seem to be marketed differently, and this gives SS an edge.
Stranger things have been done.

Costco out west has whole tenderloin for $29.xx/kg. Why the difference ?

Found the package this time around to have a lot more fat to be trimmed off. I was in a rush and didn’t weigh what I trimmed off. But noticeably more than the last tenderloin from Costco and superstore before that. Didn’t look as impressive after being trimmed. Still a good deal and quality meat.

After trimming some of the silver skin - cut into 1.5 inch steaks (got 9 steaks plus some leftovers for stew)
- voila...
