Very lean

4 stars

Very lean, nice joint of meat. Quite expensive. Just wish there was more choice like other supermarkets have.

Gristly chewy and awful

2 stars

What a let down. Very disappointed and won’t buy this again. Lots of thick gristle running through the middle.

It was top quality and very tasty.

5 stars

It was top quality and very tasty.

Nice tender meat but gristle right thru the middle

4 stars

Bought this joint to try, I am vulnerable and have not been shopping since March, I was very dubious leaving someone else to choose my joint, my husband was a butcher for 30 years, so leave him to choose our meat. The beef was lovely, tasty and tender but unfortunately when we cut it it had a line of gristle running right through the whole joint. It wasn't the packers fault you couldn't see it, it was top rump so I will try another piece but request that I don't get top rump again. Hopefully the next piece will be gristle free.

Tasty and tender

5 stars

Alway dubious about someone else picking my roasting joint, but, I was not disappointed. The meat was so tender and tasty, would certainly buy again.

Tough and tasteless

2 stars

I cut it in half as there is only 2 of us. The first half tough and tasteless so I cooked the second piece in the Slow Cooker. My thinking was that with some onion and slow cooking it might be better. It wasn't . I bought it mainly because of the good reviews. One other person seems to have had the same experience as me. Won't buy it again

The roast is fine but I'm often given one that is

3 stars

The roast is fine but I'm often given one that is more than twice as big as I originally ordered. It might be worth it to put in the note the size that you want rather than just rely on the sizes given in the price.

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.
