For the record, backstrap refers to a length of loin on the back of a deer, elk, moose, etc. It's the ribeye in beef and loin in pork. Tenderloins are the two strips of very tender meat under the loin, behind the ribs. This is filet mignon in beef.
Also Know, what cut is a lamb steak? Lamb chops or cutlets are the most expensive cuts of lamb, but are incredibly delicious and tender. They are taken from the ribs of the lamb and cooked individually, normally over a grill or a barbecue. When a number of them are left together and cooked as a whole, they're called a rack of lamb.

Backstrap. Also called Eye of Short Loin, this comes from the middle loin and is trimmed of all excess fat and cut into steak portions.
