At the time of the publication of the Lobels' cookbook MEAT by the Lobels in 1971, Jawn A. Sandifer was a Justice of the Supreme Court of the State of New York and was an excellent judge of fine cooking. Mrs. Sandifer was a talented cook, and this was one of the couple's favorite recipes. Since October is National Chili Month, we wanted to share this tasty, time-tested recipe.

To quote classic Sinatra: "You can't have one. You can't have none. You can't have one without the other."
As with peanut butter and jam, mashed potatoes and gravy, lo mein and oyster sauce, strawberries and whipped cream, certain foods have certain affinities for certain other foods that create indelible and unique taste memories.
From a hearty, grilled, perfectly medium-rare rib steak topped with a garlicky mushroom sauté, or Beef Wellington coated with mushroom duxelles and wrapped snugly in a blanket of puff pastry, to the earthy, slow-cooked classic of Boeuf Bourguignon, beef and mushrooms share that type of affinity.

The tenderest cuts of beef come from the aptly named tenderloin. And, when you look at the price of the most desirable center portions of tenderloin, filet mignon and Chateaubriand, they are also the most expensive cuts of beef.
However, the tenderloin also yields cuts that, by comparison to the filet and Chateau, are less expensive yet have the same tenderness and flavor as the prized center cuts.
The shape of the tenderloin tapers from the head (large end) to the tail (small end). Both ends can be roasted, sliced into small steaks, or cut into cubes or strips for kabobs, stir frys, stroganoff, and so much more.
So, with a couple of sharp knives and a game plan, buying a whole tenderloin is a comparatively economic way to enjoy of range of meals with some simple home butchering skills.
