Beef tenderloin, or filet, is the most expensive and most tender cut of beef. It also has little fat—and fat is what usually accounts for a meat’s taste—so to “flavor-it-up,” try marinating it or rubbing it with an herbed blend, or serving it with a sauce or cheese-flavored butter. Grilling, too, adds its own unique flavor to meats, and faultless grilled tenderloins translate into a delicious fall salad made with homemade blue cheese dressing. A 4-pound piece usually serves 6 to 8; a 6-pound piece usually serves 8 to 10.
