TIP: Do you have leftover beef and don’t know what to do with it? Get inspired and cook a delicious beef broth , which you can freeze for stock.

Why is the sauce called tenderloin?

One of the reasons why it is called that is the shape of the meat to the tip. It is also possible that part of the meat, or beef candle, is found in cattle areas where there is a lot of tallow, which is the raw material from which candles were made long ago.

A rather truer theory of the name is the fact that in the Middle Ages one of the guild duties of a master butcher was to prepare a dinner for journeymen once a year. Dinner was thus held when the journeymen returned to their studies after the summer holidays and was by candlelight. Roast beef was regularly served, i.e. roast by candlelight, also sirloin roast.
