  ELK TENDERLOIN, aka  ELK Filet mignon comes from the INSIDE of the backbone.  The most tender piece of meat on the animal.  Most prized by chefs and restaurateurs.

 

 

 

 

 

THE SADDLE CUTS

The most traditional of venison cuts, the Saddle contains two rib racks, two strip loins, two shortloins and two tenderloins.

  The ELK SADDLE CUTS are also known as the ELK BACKSTRAP, loins or classically the ELK Rib Eye and ELK New York loins. The elk backstrap (elk loin) is on the OUTSIDE of the backbone with the Rib Eye to the front overlapping the chuck cuts and New York toward the back.  The Elk New York joins with the sirloin butt found on the rump.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Elk Tenderloin may be left with the Elk Saddle to be separated later or may be left and cross cut into ELK T-bone steaks containing a portion of the Tenderloin and the New York loin.  An Elk Porterhouse Steak contains the largest piece of Elk Tenderloin.
