The kidney cone (in parts of Bavaria and Austria also Herzzapfen , French onglet , English hanging tender ) is a part of beef or veal . These are the diaphragmatic pillars ( lumbar part of the diaphragm) and are sometimes also called that. The remaining part of the diaphragm is called the hem flesh; in Bavaria and Austria also known as crown meat .
The kidney cone is technically part of the innards , even though it is pure muscle meat.
