Beef Butt Fillet?

Hi everyone,
At the market yesterday, I asked the butcher for a beef tenderloin. He brought me what was labeled a "Beef Butt Fillet". Is this the same as a tenderloin? If not, what cut of meat and what type of quality should I expect with this cut of meat?

Is this what you got? Unfotunately it looks like their recipe section is under construction, but it shows that it is definitly a tenderloin.

I cannot imagine why any butcher would label one of the finest cuts of the beef as anything else but tenderloin.

I would recommend you buy a copy of Merle Elliss' book "Cutting up in the Kitchen".

You can get a paperback copy cheap from Amazon.

It will introduce you to the world of cuts of meat in a very gentle manner.

I have never seen tenderloin labelled as anything but that.

"A whole beef tenderloin comprises three sections. The thicker end of the roast is called 'butt tender';the middle portion -virtually an even thickness - is called the 'short tenderloin';the tip end is sold as part of the whole or removed and sold of tenderloin tips." Cooks Illustrated NOV?DEC'98 pg 6

Hope this helps.
