Just a bit about meat and it's flavor...The more active the muscle, the more collagen and intense flavor it will have...A Burger made from ground Tenderloin sounds like it would be wonderful. Some steak houses grind Tenderlion trim and charge a premium for " Filet Mignon Burgers " But it makes a burger with very little beefy flavor! The most successful high end burger joints brag that their burgers are made from a Secret Mix of cuts including Chuck, Brisket and Plate (Belly) all tough active muscles.
Two of the most BEEFY flavored portions of the steer...Heart and Tongue, the two Most active muscles you can get. I too was like, YUK! I ain't eating heart or tongue, until some older guests in a retirement home I worked for, asked me to make Braised Heart. I was Blown Away! Buy far the richest and most intensely Beefy flavored Pot Roast I had ever eaten.
Unforunately, I now know how great Heart and Tongue is but Forget getting my family past the Yuk Factor. I will always order it out but never get to make it. Some day I will secretly make Tacos de Lengua and just say it's Barbacoa...JJ
