I slow Cooked it on 150c for 3 hours it was so dry but i made plenty of gravy with the small amout of juices that the joint produced
I found the quality very good. I bought it as shown and I feel it is good value. Mine did not have an excess of fat and was very tasty. I am buying another one to freeze as chops this week.
Terrible bought for christmas just one complete blob of fat in bin same day has nothing to salvage.
Okay but was not rolled and tied as pictured
Ordered for Christmas. Was fairly good. Didn't arrive rolled and tied though as per picture - I had to do this myself.
Would not recommend
This was the worst joint I've ever had . I've never seen so much fat on pork loin it looked more like pork belly it was that bad .
Don't buy online!
This used to be a lovely long even piece of meat with very little fat for crackling which suited me fine. The one i had last week was fat with 2 pieces tied together. One part was the loin joint I would expect the other half total gristle and fat that went in the bin. Luckily 2 of my guests called off at the last minute as there wouldn't have been enough meat. A cost cutting exercise by Tesco no doubt, make up the weight with a fatty gross bit! I will only buy in store in future rather than online.
The Pork Loin
I'm sitting here replete having just enjoyed a very nice rechauffe pork loin dinner complete with Tesco Cabbage , Carrots and frozen Roast Potatoes set off nicely with 'home grown' apple sauce.The Sunday roast yesterday was very similar but was accompanied by Tesco sage and onion stuffing. We purchase a 2 kg loin joint and cut it either in two for roasting which will do 2 weekends Or butcher half of it into slices to pan fry a or cut into cubes for curries , stews or casseroles. After butchering we bag and freeze immediately. I highly recommended this product.
Perfect. Patted it dry, scored it a bit more, rested and salted it for 30 mins at room temp, cooked it for 45 mins at 220C (fan) then the rest of the time at 160C. Lovely crackling, huge amount of lean moist meat. I prefer it cold in sandwiches and salads - not a fan of "roast dinners".
A lump of pork fat
Pork loin joint cooked it for Sunday dinner to feed 4 adults and 1 child The weight was made up of a huge lump of fat inside a small piece of pork wrapped in gristle If you are reducing price of item you should not reduce quality I had ordered another next week to freeze for Xmas I have cancelled it £8 odd for a handful of pork bits. Your quality control should have a good look at this.I worked for years in a supermarket and they would not have sold rubbish like this It does your reputation no good.
Very good quality
Cooked the joint last night. The joint was tender, moist, succulent, tasty and in fact I can’t remember when I had a better joint of pork. Thoroughly recommend and I am ordering another one today.
