no fat WHYYYYY!!!??
why aren't there any fat on beef anymore!! it is healthy and tasty!!
Waste of money
Terrible has a vein of griddle all the way through it. Bought it for Easter as I had family coming. They couldn’t eat it as it was too tough even though I cooked it slow in the oven with water and vegetables. Very disappointed
Really poor cut
Really poor cut, half of the joint was inedible. So disappointing to have a proper roast dinner ready to go and then watch people spitting out the meat.
Tell your customer on meat go to a local butcher
I too, found it tuff I am surprised with all the negative comments why Tesco are still selling it, says something about alleged Quality control and to be tasteless what conditions are the animals been kept in. My butcher recently closed, Now I will be seeking out a local butcher. Tesco are great on other products and long may they be, But please tell your loyal customers local butchers are far the best.
Mouth wateringly delicious beef
Excellent joint of beef, the quality and quantity were superb, I put it in the slow cooker for 7 hours with a oxo stock cube then browned it off in the oven, it tasted amazing, Sunday dinners are always a family event in our house and even my grandchildren love coming for dinner when it is beef, well done Tesco for providing an affordable, tasty joint of beef, I would highly recommend to all.
Worst beef joint have ever bought!
I totally agree with all these appaling reviews. Although i am late in reviewing this it deserves an input. I have been cooking over 53 years and i have never had such a tough, tasteless, sinewy joint of beef before. How is this happening? Mine was cooked as per the norm - med - well done. after the first unacceptable tasting, decided to try braising slices with gravy, even this did not tenderise it. Worst joint ever, and waste of money for such a product. Never again1
This piece of beef announced itself as topside. If it was, it was nothing like topside I have ever experienced in over 50 years of cooking. An odd oblong shape and full of sinew, with absolutely no flavour whatsoever. After trying 3 slices each, my partner and I chucked it in the bin.
Sadly very expensive and a disappointing Sunday lunch, despite my efforts. The meat was cooked quite rare and left to rest. The bits we could eat were tasty but the meat was tough and sinewy. Back to the butcher for me!
Do not Buy!
This beef joint was so tough I struggled to get a meat thermometer into it! We tried to eat a slice but couldn't, chucked the whole joint in the bin! Complete waste of money.
Not cheap but excellent quality and very tender. Going by the other reviews I hope that my purchases were not just luck as am ordering again today.
