"Petite Shoulder Tender"

What kind of beef cut is this? I bought it at the grocery store, pre-marinated in rosemary balsamic. Tried to look up recipes for it, but can't find any. It's about half a pound.

Is this just another name for a specific cut of beef?

Never heard of this cut....Maybe it's a Chuck-Eye steak

Is what you bought like this?

If so, thatís a relatively new cut.

A premium but lean beef cut that made its initial debut in fine restaurants, the Petite Tender provides a lower-cost option to cuts such as the New York Strip, Rib Eye, Filet Mignon and Porterhouse. This cut ó also known as the Shoulder Tender, Shoulder Petite Tender and Beef Shoulder Filet ó is a small, individual muscle located in the shoulder area.

I bought one not too long ago and grilled it to medium rare. It was fantastic. And for leftovers, it made the best cold roast beef sandwiches I think Iíve ever had. Just slice the meat really thin and make your sandwich!

Yup, that's it! I ended up pan-searing it, then roasting it in the oven to medium-rare...absolutely fantastic! I'll also be making a cold sandwich with the rest, with some lettuce, tomato, and horseradish.

To be as relatively inexpensive as it is, I was really surprised at how good it was. And youíll LOVE the sandwiches! The only downside is itís hard to find. So far, Iíve only found it at Wal-Mart, and even that is hit and miss depending on stocking and inventory. Iíll definitely be cooking this againÖ.if I can find it!
