  • Beef Petite Tender Roast is a small separate muscle that rests on top of the shoulder near the top blade. The shoulder tender is separated by following the natural seam. All external fat is removed. The shape and size are similar to pork tenderloin. The petite roast averages 8 to 10 ounces.
  • Substitute Tenderloin (Filet Mignon) or Ribeye Steak if the Petite Tender is not available.
