Don't be put off by the negative reviews. This minced steak is perfect for making burgers, Bolognaise and many other dishes providing it's known how to be used correctly. Sell by dates are the paranoia of the inexperienced! Will they ever grow up?

Looking at the poor reviews on poor freshness and lack of low fat I'm not expecting much but if this proves not to be the case I will ammend. I think 1 star is a bit mean though because it is still edible. If it has only one day of life I can use it the next day and if it is fattty I will render it down . I wonder what the full fat stuff is like though. Look on the positive sde I could save the fat and use it for baking, saving 39 pence by not buying lard. He he!
goes out of date Tomorrow!! Along with another 5 of my items. So frustrating, i received my delivery at 21:00 and the mince
Not as lean as it once was!
I have always bought this regularly (home made meatballs/burgers/tortilla's etc) and have noticed since the outbreak of covid that the quality has dropped, I have always recommended this to everyone in the past but not sure I will any longer, I have noticed a shorter shelf life (used to be a week) and a large quantity of gristle and other white stuff has appeared. As it was always the leanest beef I could find anywhere we loved it but having a family of 'Jack Sprat's it seems I am taking much longer to make the meatballs as I'm forever pulling bits out and the first meatballs rolled are browning with the extra time I'm taking. I would pay extra if it was the quality it once was returned.
Previously frozen meat!
Despite selling this in Fresh Meat, Tesco produces the mince from previously frozen meat. The website does not mention that, and information on the package only says this in small print, by the way.
Poor date, very poor
Use by date was next day.... very poor for tesco.
poor use by date!
Poor use by date! Received 2 packs on the evening of the 24th June with a use by for the 25th. Appears reviews are much the same. Tesco, why arent you correcting this? Either amend the 3+ days stated on the site or inform your staff to not pick these dates.
Very lean, lots of flavour, great quality, highly recommended

Just received my order 22:50 pm on 17/06/20 use by date on both minced steak packs is tomorrow the 18/06/20. Not at all happy with this. I had even asked that there be decent dates on fresh meats, vegetables and fruit in my order.
