Not up to the mark
1 star for flavour, but this was so tough we had difficulty in even eating it and had to throw the rest away. Might be ok in a long slow cooked casserole, but not for oven cooking. It's certainly not gold star quality.
great for casserole, sweet & sour or pork & beans
excellent - have used for pork & apple casserole sweet & sour pork and pork & beans - always really good quality, tender tasty and versatile
Lean tender and cooks quickly. Minimal waste waste

Buy this only if you have some butchery skills :)
Pork fillet was very good AFTER I did what the Tesco butcher should have! :( The fillet had main sinew left on, and a thin side sinew left in place, both of which are completely inedible and should have been removed. Appears deliberate to maintain sales weight. Both were visible through the clear packaging. So, very poor butcher work, and poor quality control on what should have been a very nice product sold trouble free.
Worst I've ever had. Took me nearly 30 minutes to
Worst I've ever had. Took me nearly 30 minutes to remove all the sinew. Won't be buying it again.
This cut is rubbish
This piece of meat was inedible for the second time. I shall not be buying similar. A complete waste of money I cant believe it was cut as described- it was too tough to eat. Prices of meat are going up and quality goes down. We will have to start using a real butcher again!
This was for a Sunday treat. It was hugely disappointing. It was very tough and hard to slice despite careful cooking. We threw much of it away. I am afraid I shall not be buying this again.
Tesco at its best
today 16th Feb , use by date 16th Feb , the picker has exceled themselves today ,and Green bananas by time they are yellow they are dry ,
Dreadful quality by the time the fat was cut off half the weight was gone, absolutely shocking.
I had to throw this away - could not eat it. I followed the cooking instructions. The cooking period I used (for 40 mins). It seems the only reviewers who found this pork fillet good to eat, were those who cooked it long and slow / used a slow cooker. If slow cooking is the only way to make this cut edible, it should be clearly stated on the instructions. It was stringy and tough when cooked as advised. Perhaps not ‘hung/matured’ for long enough, or poorly butchered. Very disappointing.
