If you can’t tell by now, I love beef. Not only do I love a great steak like filet mignon, but I love beef tenderloin as well. I know these two cuts of beef aren’t cheap. I get it. Sometimes it’s okay to splurge a little here and there. But if you can’t, I have a great meat alternative for this Beef Medallions recipe that will save you money and still have amazing flavor.
Beef Tenderloin vs. Beef Round
Beef tenderloin is a cut from the most tender part of the cow, which is located in the loin, and the beef round is located in the rear leg of the cow. Across the board, beef tenderloin is the most expensive cut of beef. I wanted to make beef tenderloin for Christmas one year and I found a nice cut and it cost about $200. Did I buy it? Uhhhhh…no! I would’ve been mad if I bought that cut of beef and messed it up some kind of way. Also, beef round steaks are easier to find than beef tenderloin. I went to two grocery stores and neither had the beef tenderloin.
