No marbling, quite tough.

2 stars

This was really tough, even though I roasted it and rested it the same as I always cook beef, so it was pink in the middle and should have been tender. There was no marbling to the meat and I probably wouldn’t have selected this joint in store (it was a home delivery). You might have more success slow cooking it, but if you want a nice tender roast, avoid this joint of meat.

Don't bother

1 stars

This was just awful. Line of gristle all through the meat. As it was a smallish joint this meant there was about an inch of meat either side of the gristle. Then the ends of the meat part was all sinewy. Also the actual meat was not all that nice either, no flavour. Absolutely vile!!!

This was / is the worst bit of Beef I've ever had

1 stars

This was / is the worst bit of Beef I've ever had , cooking times were Rubbish , (I know they always are ,) but after I left it in the oven for longer it was tough , and smelt off , just nothing good about this at all . We did eat it , but to be honest what we could save would have only served one person . The rest was fat and gristle, i put it in the bin , DONT BOTHER .

perfection and tender cook it to the stated time

5 stars

it was perfect I cooked it to suggested time it was tender and juicy will buy again

Don't waste your money on this meat

1 stars

If I could give this zero stars then I would. It was simply the worst piece of meat I have had in 50 years of cooking. It looked OK in the package but the label concealed a huge seam of connective tissue throughout the whole of the joint. The meat distorted during cooking ( because of this sinew ) and it was impossible to carve into slices. I cooked it exactly as the instructions stated and it was extremely tough, tasteless and unpleasant. I'm afraid that I had to throw it away, also a first for me as I never waste food and can salvage most cooking disasters

Looked nice and was fresh on opening on day after
