Have used this mince for spaghetti Bolognese and mince dinners on a Sunday and I've always find it's good quality.
Great taste, low fat and low price. Winning
Very low fat and great taste. Been buying this for 18 months and half price compared to other supermarkets of high quality. 5% much better than 10% we used to get at the meat counter! Strongly recommended!
How to successfully hide bad meat
I have been buying this mince for a number of years and have always found it to be better quality than other stores. The last few times I have had this, there has been gone off brown mince mixed into the middle of the block of mince that you can't see until you open the pack and start to break it up. Tesco need to address this - I have complained to them but I suspect nothing will be done (they even tried to blame the personal shopper). Obviously I will be looking elsewhere from now on.
Almost impossible to cook to a tender state.
Dont know what type of steak this is but I assume it must have been stewing steak took one and a half hours to cook to an eatable state. If I buy Steak mince from my butcher at a similar price I know it will be grilling or frying steak and will cook in under 10 minutes, usually about 5 minutes. One more item I will not b e buying from you again.(I noticed that you hide this fact in your cooking instructions. It could of course be that your supplier is not being honest with you.
Tasteless beef. Beef usually has a strong taste unlike lamb. This is was utterly devoid of taste. Pity as beef is such an important part of many dishes.
Good product gone bad
What's going on with this mince recently? I've bought the 5% lean beef mince for years and have always been pleased with the quality until the last month or so - it's now very greasy and has many lumps of gristle - not sure what the problem is with quality control but I'm considering shopping elsewhere. It's not just the mince, I've noticed the finest pork and honey chipolatas have gone downhill too, shame.
Great British mince
Always good quality mince, the Red Tractor and Union Jack logo show that the mince can be traced back to the British farm it came from and every step of its journey from there to the supermarket. Lots of worry over food standards at the moment, totally understandable but we do still have some safeguards and this is one of them.
Is it British or Irish?
I have bought this mince many times and been very happy with it. In the past it has always said British or Irish, which is fine. I can no longer see the origin online so will not buy again until I know that it is British or Irish.
It was perfect so WHY IS IT CONSTANTLY OUT OF STOCK????
Better clearer labelling .
I would like to see clear labeling as to where its from and if Halal or not so I can make choices . I want to shop from British farmers
