Had a joint for New Year Day. It was ok, but a bit too much fatter in places.
Bought the largest size. Plenty of rind for crackling.I always manage to mess up the crackling, but this came out perfectly crispo and golden, and not too hard to cut/chew. Tender meat - buying another!
Very poor use by dates on fresh and cooked meats
When you spend over £150 per week on food, why is it that fresh meat selected for home delivery always seems to have a use before date only two days after the delivery. If I am doing a weeks shop, are we supposed to consume all our meat in two days!!! Very disappointed with the pork ordered for this week as it had to be consumed within two days. When you buy a joint of meat you would expect it to have a longer date on it. It has been the same experience for cooked meats.
Just had my order delivered this joint is for Sunday lunch today is the 13 may this joint has come today with today's date on the meat is Gray and smelly . ???
The very worst Pork ever
The very worst Pork ever eaten. It was full of fat and separate pieces of pork rolled inside. Took 4 hours to cook. Went in the bin. Terrible crackling. Look for a new supplier.... I had to fill in a star to publish but would give it a minus ....
Really nice joint. Cooked as advised. Was delicious and very tender. The crackling even worked - cooking it on the joint. A huge success and was enough for two meals for me and two teenage boys. Will be buying again.
This joint had something really nasty on it it loo
This joint had something really nasty on it it looked like a growth or a tumour I had no choice but to throw it in the bin I felt sick.
Was very good
Was very good
Cooked great and good value for money.
I was surprised at how good this was for the price. I cooked it with a bit of oil and herbs in a roasting dish, and basted it every now and again for extra flavour. It was was so moist and tasty, and carved well into thin slices. The fat around it just pulled straight off (we don't eat the crackling) so that wasn't an issue, as I was worried some of it might "stick" to the joint but it didn't at all. Will definitely buy again as an alternative to our usual beef and chicken on a Sunday!
