What’s the difference between Beef Tenderloin and Prime Rib?

Or are they the same thing?
If they are different, is it best to use a different method of cooking for each one?

The Tenderloins are located on either side of the spine and are different cut of meat than the rib. The rib roast or "prime rib is between ribs 6-12. The Tenderloins are located further back on the cow. If you slice a "prime rib" you will get "ribeye" steaks. These steaks tend to have a higher fat content and are considered the mos flavorful of steaks. When you slice the Tenderloin you end up with "Filet Mignon" which is a much leaner and more tender cut of meat.

Both Tenderloin and prime rib are Delicious when roasted whole. they can both be cut in to steaks and are best grilled when in steak form.

    No, they are not the same cut of meat and yes it is best to use a different method of cooking each.
    Beef rib roast large end is cut from the large end of rib primal, ribs six to nine, or any combination of two or three ribs. It contains large eye muscle with elongated muscling, and is streaked with strips of fat that surround the rib eye. It has a good fat covering, and is usually prepared by roasting.
    Beef Loin Top Loin Steak Boneless
    Beef loin top loin steak boneless is the same as beef loin top loin steak but with the backbone removed. It contains top loin muscle and is usually prepared by broiling, grilling, panbroiling, or panfrying.
    Beef loin T-bone steak gets its name from the T-shape of the finger bone and backbone. It contains top loin and tenderloin muscles. The tenderloin is smaller in beef loin T-bone steak than in beef loin porterhouse steak, with a diameter of no less than one-half inch when measured across the center. It is usually prepared by broiling, grilling, panbroiling, or panfrying.

    Yes that beef tenderloin was rather delightful. It was served on a bed of gnnochi with cream sauce. Beef was done medium rare, so it was tenderloin at its best, awesome flavour, moist and of course, tender.

    Of course a boycott is a legitimate exercise of free speech. But it’s not the only one. So is voicing a contrary opinion and criticism. Chick-Fil-A has the right to posture its company in the marketplace any way it wants. But neither Chick-Fil-A nor its supporters gets to dictate what an appropriate response to that position will be. The often-forgotten corollary to free speech is that you can’t escape being held responsible for what you say.

    It is true that God is our Judge. But it is also possible to interpret this judgment in dialogal terms, i.e., in terms of dialogue between God and us, and interaction between the divine freedom and human freedom. In this sense, it is God's judgment as well as our own judgment (decision) whether we live in communion with God or not… forever.

    Moreover, Christ is the norm of God's judgment; He is the mediator of this dialogue and interaction between God and humanity, between divine freedom and human freedom.

    Poor Juls, how ironic for such a great writer to have trouble with the very things she needs the most, her hands! Like everybody else I have to say I’ve never heard of the condition until now but each of us will be spreading the word I’m sure, well done to PiP for tweeting it too.I really hope something can be done but at the very least with the immediacy of the internet you are already making progress in raising awareness. May your brother be your inspiration and likewise may you be his. Best wishes x

    Beetle B. writes "A 22,000-member group for Saudis studying in the US on the social networking website Facebook has been split into two groups, one for women and one for men. The split follows a request from the group’s female members who wanted extra privacy. The separate page for Saudi women is a valid decision. We took it to fulfill the wishes of the Saudi women in the US. We have been contacted by a lot of women asking for their private group,’ Majed Aleid, media chair of the ‘Saudis in the US’ group, told Arab News in a letter."

    “It could be said that Darwin’s motto is that individual difference makes the difference. Where, prior to Darwin, there was a sharp gulf separating difference inhabiting the individual and species-difference, Darwin shows how individual difference is productive of species-difference.”

    I like this a lot, but how do we say this sort of thing, get it across – give it ontic density – without reducing difference to individual-difference

    we may, actually be watching the wrong part of the world. this is just showing us what we already knew. 14th century societies can not exist in a technology rich enviornment. the peasants will not ” eat cake” while watching the rest of the world drink good wine and eat prime rib. watch Ohio.

    Beef bowl is my favorite dish. I often have it in a restaurant of beef bowls. The most famous beef bowl restaurant is Yoshino-ya, whose branches are running also in Los Angeles and New York. Unfortunately it isn't in Vancouver and while I was living in Vancouver, the BSE trouble attacked Yoshino-ya and it gave up selling beef bowls temporarily. The trouble has not been solved yet and they can't still purchase the cheap, U.S. beef which is recognized to be dangerous in Japan. So I haven't had Yoshino-ya's beef bowl for about two years now. This beef bowl picture I took in the other beef bowl restaurant. It isn't bad, but there are little slices of beef and much more egg instead!
