Filet mignon steaks cut from the tenderest center section can cost $20 per pound or more at premium markets. Instead, buy PSMO tenderloin (Peeled, Skinned, side Muscle Off) at warehouse club stores for about $9 per pound. Don’t worry; purplish vacuum-packed tenderloin will brighten once exposed to oxygen and any odor will quickly disappear. Cut steak to suit and freeze the remainder or roast half or whole, because individual steaks shrink more. Another option: Buy cone-shaped tenderloin tips, (about $10 per pound), perfect for stir-fries and sautés.View Recipe: Thyme and Spice-Rubbed Roast Beef Tenderloin au Jus
