usually ok but last sunday the joint was awful full of fat and was so tough i couldnt cut it.

Unfit for purpose

1 stars

The basting fat covered up the fact there were to pieces of meat with another lump of fat between the two, or that was how it appeared. Could have been one piece with the lump of fat in the middle. Only managed to get one person servicing from it. Positive note when reported cost of it was refunded. Better quality control need.

Super Silverside!

5 stars

Smashing piece of beef for Sunday roast. Cooked for just under an hour and the meat was melt in the mouth perfect. Cooked on 190C in fan oven (45 mins with foil on) and 10 mins foil off. Juicy and succulent - made some smashing gravy from the meat juices (didn't use fat, but would imagine it would make delicious roasties!) Buy with confidence. Smallest joint would feed a family of four easily.

1 stars

Absolutely the worst piece of beef my family has ever eaten. I cooked it perfectly but it was almost inedible. Tough and chewy throughout. Never again!

Worst joint of beef, ever

1 stars

This was the worst joint of beef I have ever eaten. It was cooked as per the instructions and it was meant to come out medium rare. It was still so rare that I struggled to put the carving fork into the joint. So I put it in for another 20 minutes. When carving it was still on the rare side but eating it was a struggle. It was as tough as old boots. Very disappointed.

Disappointing quality

1 stars

This was the worst cut of beef i have ever purchased from Tesco. It was full of gristle and I had to throw over half of it away.

Excellent Roast

5 stars

Great value for money meat was suculant and tender just seasoned with salt and pepper great roast

Cook for longer. 6 mins per 100g is not enough

2 stars

The cooking instructions (timings and temp) are just wrong. This joint will not cook to anything near edible in the time and temperature suggested. Using a new-ish oven which is in daily use, two attempts at this has resulted in undercooked and wasted food. I allowed an extra 15 minutes at 160 but that wasn't enough. A higher temp is required to cook in this time. Very disappointed.
