Not the cheapest but very tender.
Tough as old boots
We were really looking forward to a birthday treat of organic roast beef dinner. Couldn't have been more disappointed Small joint which consisted of 2 stringy lumps held together with fatty sheath.Trimmed and cooked slowly but almost inedible and so tough. Will stick to our organic local butcher for future treats! .
Too little fat
It baffles me why Tesco's Organic range has gone so heavy on reduced-fat. I even add my own animal fats to their mined meats. If people don't want it, they can remove it themselves but it's where all the flavour is and helps to keeps the meat moist. Way to ruin a decent chunk of meat...
Vegetables and yorkshire all ready to dish up, gravy made! Delicious! Meat? Tough as a boot! So disappointed, wasn't cheap and I cooked it slowly to ensure well done and tender. Not buying again,
Don't waste your money!
Poor quality. lots of gristle throughout the joint, making it impossible to eat, no matter how it is cooked. I had read the reviews before I bought it, and followed one person's advice, which was to cook it slowly on a lower heat. For the price, and considering it was Scottish organic, I had expected better. Please Tesco, remove this, and replace it with something edible!
Awful. The worst joint of meat ever bought from T
Awful. The worst joint of meat ever bought from Tesco. Bought it due to other joints unavailable. Gristle running all the way through, cooked like old leather a complete waste of money.
Bought to have for Sunday dinner ,there was no ind
Bought to have for Sunday dinner ,there was no indication what the joint was apart from being discribed as a roasting joint .Although seasoned with garlic ,saltand pepper the meat still turnedl out to have very little flavour and a lot of gristle on the possitive side it was resonabley tender, to sum up i would say a very poor piece of meat .
Very disappointed cooked as usual but it was tough. ( purchased the Org. Beef on the 29 December and cooked on New Years I wanted finest but Tesco did not have any.
This was the best beef I have tasted in years!
I only rarely eat beef these days, but this was delicious, tender and melted in the mouth. I was looking for animals that had been pasture feed and a bit if a life and compromised with these being fed organic grain too. I gave this joint a slow cook in a large, lidded Pyrex dish, mid-oven for around 2 and three quarter hours took it out, final basting and put lid back on for it to rest. I’d put some Il Casolare Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Tamari Sauce to coat it in and give the occasional basting with. I also used “mini skewers” to attach fat slices of shallots (or use onion) and a bit of ground black pepper. Saved the juices and shallot/onion for a delicious gravy. Too high a heat will dry it out and would make any meat tough.
Disappointing quality. This was really a bit tough when cooked as it said on the label.
