Half the size of the one I ordered!
I ordered the 1.7 Kg size which by some magic was changed to 1.4 kg, but what was delivered was 991g. The smallest roasting joint I have ever seen. Not cooked yet, but seems Hardly worth putting the oven on for.
Perfect for a Sunday tender and tasty
perfect for a Sunday roast very tender and tasty

Tough as old boots.....
Truly awful. Joint was a very strange shape being flat and long. Not like a roasting joint at all. As this was part of an online delivery, I couldn't really send it back as the drivers always "drop and run" I decided to give it a try. Finest? No, it definitely wasn't that. The joint was grey, grainy textured and tough. Really disappointed. Can't seem to get a decent roasting joint of any description from Tesco online, which is frustrating.
A Great piece of Beef
Experience has shown us that supermarket beef joints can be tough , with a hidden piece of gristle which you do not see on purchase. However decided to go for it as if we had anymore chicken we would have feathers under our armpits. I am pleased to report that this joint was first class and tender. The label was marked "Top side " so the picture here needs updating
Awful. No taste at all.
Awful. No taste at all. Trying to minimise going to the shops so ordered online. Never again. Beef! In your wildest dreams.
Nice if you can get it!
The Headline say's Top Side, The picture say's Silverside and the description says Top Rump...erm.... anyway, what we got were Top Rump and although one had a line of gristle the other didn't and I have to say it cooked perfectly and tasted divine, will definitely give this another go but it's not available at the mo..
Well worth the extra
Lovely succulent joint. I Actually ignored the instructions on the packet and cooked it to a James Martin recipe. Was pricey but well worth the extra money as aposed to the cheaper roasting cut we normally buy. Best roast I’ve ever made thanks
Cooked it on Boxing Day as per the instructions on the packet. Took it out and let it rest. It wasn't rare, it was raw in the middle, and the cooked parts were tough. It was slightly better cold the next day. What is left is going to be minced for a cottage pie for tonight. Luckily there was only the two of us as it was very disappointing.
Silverside and Topside are different
Do the people who write the descriptions not realise that there is a difference between TOPSIDE and SILVERSIDE? I ordered a large joint of what I thought was Topside but when it came it was SS. Silverside has a flavour like liver or kidney which we don’t like in our house.
