DO NOT BUY
It is rare for me to write a bad review, but feel the necessity in this case. Looked very good, basing fat on top comes away easily, not sinewy. BUT the toughest beef joint that it has been my misfortune to cook. Had to rush out to Sainsbury's to buy a chicken so that the family could enjoy my roast. Do not buy.
Tough as old boots
Awful quality. So tired of poor quality meat from supermarkets. Going elsewhere now as it ruins meals, and wastes time cooking. Toughest meat ever, never again.
Cooked the joint as per instructions. Looked good coming out of oven, left to rest then tried to carve it. A large line of gristle ran the full length of the meat with fibres running in two directions either side of the gristle. It was inedible, tough, tasteless absolutely awful. DON'T even try this. My daughter bought the same joint and her's was the same, terrible.
Tough and loads of gristle no wonder it was half price NEVER AGAIN
No fat thanks
Cheap because you are buying a great lump of fat which of course nobody needs, it's just a con.I agree with others that you need to watch out for which cut you are buying because silverside and brisket are not for roasting so if the package does not say what the cut is, leave well alone. There is another problem which is the cooking instructions are usually wrong. If you can find a bit of topside or top rump, use Jamie Oliver's method which I used yesterday with a piece of finest topside yesterday to obtain a superb medium rare result. Forget all that "well done" rubbish which loses a lot of the taste.
Delivered as a substitute for Tesco finest. Utterly inedible Easter roast. Mainly gristle with a little bootleather meat. Binned the lot!
Taste great but may get substituted with bigger
Never gotten a bad joint of beef from here and has always tasted great. Only down side is, if ordering online you may get a much bigger joint than selected and you will get charged the price that's on packet regardless of the one you selected unless you leave a comment.
Horrible, chewy, gristly beef. The absolutely worst one I've bought in years. AVOID!
Poor quality meat
terrible joint of meat, poor quality with gristle in about a third of the joint. totally ruined my sunday dinner. Sadly was a substitute for tesco finest beef joint now i know why it was half price.
Really enjoyed this tender joint
good value for money. Cooked slow it was beautifully tender
