The short loin is what you think of when you think of steak. This part of the cow contains the porterhouse, T-bone, strip loin, or strip steak. This is also one of the bigger parts of the cow that will yield multiple steaks depending on the size of the cow. The tenderloin actually cuts into the short loin of the cow. Depending on how the tenderloin is removed, you could possibly be cutting out the T-bone or porterhouse steaks because those steaks contain a part of the tenderloin muscle. Roasting, broiling, and grilling are the best dry heat ways of preparing beef from this section of the cow.
