[T&T Supermarket] Whole Beef Tenderloin - 7.99/lb

I just saw at the Richmond Hill T&T (Yonge/Weldrick) that Whole Beef Tenderloin was being sold for 17.61/kg or 7.99/lb.

I have no idea what grade the tenderloin is since the package label doesn't say but the price is good considering the cheapest elsewhere now is about 30/kg or 13.60/lb so I picked up a package to give it a try. In my experience, beef tenderloin results aren't as dependent on the grade as other, more fatty, cuts are.

Also, this isn't in their weekly flyer so I'm unclear whether it's just at this store or others as well.

how much of the filet do you get after you trim it?

Yeah, it's very cheap. Keep in mind that I have no idea what the grade is and, since I don't see it advertised in the flyer, I don't know how widespread this pricing is.

For beef tenderloin, I don't find that you lose a lot since the cut is a lean one. And since it's a lean cut, I don't notice a huge amount of difference between AAA and AA grades. It's very different from, say, a prime rib roast.

Thanks. Loblaws will occasionally have AA whole tenderloin for $9.99/lb. Very informative tutorial for those who decide to get one.

We buy these from Loblaw's whenever they're on sale.

I thought I'd also share the reference video I always use whenever I need to carve mine:



It doesn't waste time with shots of the butcher's face, and has a really great technique for getting the silverskin off (spoiler, flip the tenderloin over, and you'll shave the thinnest silverskin right off). I also think it's strange how he left so much of the fat from the underside on.
