Is the backstrap the same as the Tenderloin?
Subsequently, one may also ask, what cut of meat is the backstrap?
For the record, backstrap refers to a length of loin on the back of a deer, elk, moose, etc. It's the ribeye in beef and loin in pork. Tenderloins are the two strips of very tender meat under the loin, behind the ribs. This is filet mignon in beef.
Secondly, what is another name for backstrap? We only use two names: backstraps and tenderloins. i have also heard them called back loins and strip loins. As said the small inners are tenderloins and the long outside cuts are simply loins. funny how no one calls the loin from a cow or domestic pig backstraps.
Hereof, what is a backstrap?
backstrap (plural backstraps) A pull strap extending the backstay of a boot or shoe. The backbone of a book. A loin of meat consisting of the muscle on each side of the spine. An anchoring strap, passed around the waist or hips, for a small loom.
How many tenderloins does a deer have?
