Beef Tenderloin Roast for Chateaubriand Complete Meal Plan Overview

The tenderloin is the tenderest cut of beef and is also arguably the most desirable and therefore the most expensive. The tenderloin runs along both sides of the spine and is usually harvested as two long snake-shaped cuts of beef.
When sliced along the short dimension, creating roughly round cuts, and tube cuts, the cuts (fillet) from the small forward end are considered to be fillet mignon (see figure). Those from the center are tournedos, however some butchers in the United States label all types of tenderloin steaks ¨fillet mignon¨.
What Are Lean Cuts
In order from leanest to fattiest, lean cuts of beef include brisket, round top roast and steak, round steak, shank cross cut, chuck shoulder pot roast, sirloin tip center roast and steak, chuck shoulder steak and bottom round steak. Other lean cuts to look for include top loin steak, shoulder petit medallions, flank steak, shoulder center steak, tri-tip roast and steak, tenderloin roast and steak, and T-bone steak.
When you are at the grocer an easy rule to find lean beef quickly is that anything with ¨round¨, ¨chuck¨ or ¨loin¨ in its name is either lean or extra lean
Is Beef Tenderloin Roast a Healthy Food? ¨Most people don´t realize that there are thirty six different cuts of beef that are considered lean by the USDA¨. Registered Dietician Whitney Reist says: ¨The tenderloin though a little more expensive, is one of the leanest cuts of beef available¨.
The center cut portion of the tenderloin not only produces the tenderloin steak, but the fillet mignon, the chateaubriand steak and beef Wellington.
Tenderloin roast is packed with important nutrients.
Trimmed of fat a 3 oz medallion of beef tenderloin contains 24g of protein, according to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). Two-thirds of all calories in beef tenderloin comes from protein. The protein of beef is high quality, containing all the essential amino acids.
Even when trimmed, beef tenderloin is not fat free. A 3 oz cut will provide 8.1g of total fats of which 3.2 g is saturated fat (bad cholesterol).
Beef tenderloin like other cuts of beef is carbohydrate free. That is, it doesn´t contain any sugar, fiber or other carbs. It therefore has no rating on the glycemic index and no effect on blood sugar. This makes it an attractive choice for low carb dieters and diabetics, both of whom should prefer completely trimmed leaner cuts to restrict their intake of saturated fats.
Beef tenderloin is a significant source of certain B vitamins. A 3 oz serving contains 32 percent of your daily intake of niacin, 26 percent of vitamin B6, and 19 percent of your B12. Beef tenderloin also contains significantly lesser amounts of folate, vitamin E, riboflavin, vitamin K, thiamine and pantothenic acid.
According to the USDA Beef tenderloin is a good source of several different minerals, particularly zinc, phosphorus and selenium. A 3 oz has almost half of your daily intake of selenium, about 30 percent of your zinc, and about 20 percent of your phosphorous. Beef also contains significant amounts of iron, magnesium, potassium, with between 5 to 10 percent of your recommended daily intake of each.
Beef also contains calcium, copper and sodium in negligible quantities.
In brief, when you think about the best foods for health and weight loss you may not think about steak. But steak can be part of a healthy diet to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight. However there are healthy ways and not- so- healthy ways to choose and prepare steak if you want to stay lean.
