Argentine Angus - Grass Fed,Tenderloin - Chilled
Sliced from the beef Loin the Tenderloin, also call psoas major, is a long and narrow muscle coming from high up inside the loin, between the Sirloin and the Top Loin, extending from the hip bone up to the 13th rib. Considered a sedentary muscle, the Tenderloin holds its tenderness from the fact that is not much used by the animal. Two muscles are directly attached to the tenderloin and generally removed before packing: the Psoas Minor (also called the chain) and Iliacus (called the side muscle or wing muscle).
Located in South America and being one of the world’s largest beef exporters, Argentina is well known for its exceptional beef quality.
