Product Description

  • Beef silverside roasting joint.
  • This roasting joint will be from one of the following cuts: Topside, Top Rump and Silverside. These cuts are matured longer on the bone and for at least 30 days altogether making them ideal for roasting. They are then vacuum packed to enhance tenderness further. As part of Tesco’s delicious Finest range, this beef comes from younger cattle raised on Red Tractor (or equivalent) quality assured farms in Britain, and is trimmed to our highest standard by skilled butchers. Farms supplying our beef also have standards of quality, animal husbandry and welfare informed by the Tesco Livestock Code of Practice. Get creative with our delicious beef dinner ideas at

Finest Beef, I don't think so!!!!!

2 stars

The above cost me nearly eighteen pounds. Family came and we ate outside and the beef was terrible, tough, and grisly I had to throw most of it away. Tried several days to ring Tesco to complain, no one answered. The service at Tesco is getting worse. I have been a loyal home delivery shopper for several years!!!!

Pay the extra, it is well worth it.

5 stars

Well worth the extra bit of money as it shrinks less than cheaper joints. Amazing flavour slow cooked for a few hours You definitely get what you pay for. Nice one Tesco.

Great Joint of Beef

5 stars

Brought with some trepidation as I usually go for butcher's meat not pre-packed, but this was delicious. Tender and tasty - everyone said how good it was. Cooking time gives a well done joint so would need to adjust if preferred 'pink'. I would certainly buy this again.

5 stars

Yes Special meal .All the family together for first time since lockdown.

Very enjoyable!

5 stars

It's full of flavour and very tender. As with any meat product, it needs to be cooked slowly and left to 'rest' when cooking has finished. Enjoy!

Definitely will buy again

5 stars

Perfect, very tasty and tender. Cooked exactly as instructions at 160 but probably could have cooked 15 mins less for medium rare. Tested internal temp and was 85 after cooking so a bit well done.

5 stars

Excellent tasting. A real depth of flavour and no gristly bits. Only thing I would say was the cooking time recommendations were a bit too much, as I like my meat a little redder in the middle.

Beautiful piece of Beef

5 stars

Beautiful Topside of beef very little fat/grissle. Very tender and lovely flavour. You get what you pay for, worth every penny. I will purchase this again.
